Sunwin International Neutraceuticals, Inc., one of the top global providers of high-quality stevia extracts including Rebaudioside A 98, announced today that the company has changed its name to Sunwin Stevia International, Inc. which is effective today. The Company's trading symbol will remain "SUWN" on the OTCBB.
Management believes the new corporate name more accurately reflects the core business focus on the production and distribution of stevia and stevia-related products. With the regulatory approvals of stevia for use in the U.S. and E.U. markets as a sweetener now behind the industry, management believes there will be a progressive increase in the use of stevia by the food and beverage industry in the coming years. Management believes Sunwin Stevia International has positioned itself to capitalize on this opportunity and we intend to work diligently to solidify our position as a reliable and trusted source for multiple grades of stevia for food and beverage industry customers across the globe.
Commenting on the name change, Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia International, stated, "We are excited to unveil our new corporate name as part of the rebranding of our company. We look forward to continue to build our stevia production and distribution business as the food and beverage industry trends toward lower calorie, all natural products. We believe stevia is now in the right place at the right time to become the sweetener of choice when it comes to healthier products that taste great. We have worked hard to ensure that our facilities have met with international quality standards and we have established strong distribution relationships in North America and Europe to market our products. We are focused on building our high grade stevia extracts into the brand of choice for companies across the globe and look forward to reaching our future goals for the benefit of our company and its stockholders."
