Exporting stevia to Europe
Europe is an attractive market for exporters of stevia in developing countries. Food and beverages represent the largest manufacturing sector in Europe, where stevia is increasingly used as a sugar substitute. The increasing consumer interest in healthier lifestyles is an important driving force. The European organic food market is the second-largest in the world and continues to grow steadily. Western-European countries offer the most opportunities for stevia from developing countries.
As a stevia exporter you must comply with regulations concerning contamination, control and traceability. You will also have to meet additional requirements on request of European buyers, like certain documents or a specific certificate.
