So who is this Stevia Pioneer?
It’s the ‘Father of Stevia’ himself, Mr. James A (Jim) May!
That’s right! Jim May, the Founder & CEO of Wisdom Natural Brands (manufacturers of the highly popular Sweetleaf Stevia) will share his experiences in the Stevia Business, and offer his perspectives on the question “Is Stevia Shaking Up Sweetener Markets?”.

Since his ‘discovery’, Jim has worked relentlessly to market the product throughout the world, and has a deep understanding of the business. SweetLeaf Stevia was also the first brand of Stevia sweeteners that achieved GRAS status from the US FDA in March 2008!
