SweeGen Expands Manufacturing to Europe

July 15th, 2019

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., (July 15, 2019) — SweeGen, Inc., a nature-based sweetener company announced that it now has a new manufacturing base in Europe for its non-GMO Bestevia stevia sweeteners. This manufacturing facility will enable the company to produce around 3,000MT of next generation stevia sweeteners annually.

SweeGen expands into Europe

SweeGen successfully commercialized its non-GMO Reb M and Reb D in 2016 and 2017 respectively and just announced the approval of its latest developed steviol glycoside, Reb E, a major component in the company’s Bestevia e+ product. These non-GMO next generation sweeteners provide a clean sugar-like taste and enable product developers to replace a maximum amount of sugar and artificial sweeteners.

“European Food and Beverage companies are already working on reformulating their products to reduce sugar and artificial sweeteners. Their commitment to provide healthier, naturally sweetened products to their customers is generating an enormous need for our plant based, non-GMO stevia sweeteners,” says Luca Giannone, SweeGen’s VP of sales and marketing.

SweeGen is preparing for the approval of its stevia sweeteners by the European regulatory agency EFSA in the coming months. With its investment of over $100M in Europe, SweeGen is ensuring reliable and quick satisfaction of its customers’ stevia-based sweetener demand.
