Stock in Focus: Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF)

Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF) has seen a recent increase in volume at its $0.35 base and where it has traded in a tight range for many months. The stock has an important resistance level at $0.45 at the top of its trading range.

STVF has made some big moves in the past running from over $0.50 to well over $3 a share on spectacular volume in 2012.

Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF) is an agricultural biotechnology company based in California’s Central Valley growing region that is focused on the industrial scale production of stevia, the all-natural zero-calorie sweetener that is rapidly transforming the food and beverage industry.

Stevia has assembled some of California’s brightest scientists and agronomists, and put into action a plan to rapidly increase the global supply of stevia – the perfect natural sweetener: the holy grail of sweeteners.

There is big excitement on STVF here and many predict it is destined to become the main street workhorse natural high potency sweetener on the market. Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana.

The active compounds of stevia are steviol glycosides, which have up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar is heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable. These steviosides have a negligible effect on blood glucose, which makes stevia attractive to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets. Stevia’s taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar, and some of its extracts may have a bitter or licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations.

Stevia operates in a total global sweetener market worth an estimated $58.3 billion in 2010; the market for all-natural, zero-calorie stevia sweeteners is expanding rapidly. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates stevia intake could eventually replace 20-30% of all dietary sweeteners.

On March 25 STVF announced key technology development and sales collaborations intended to transform sugary beverage consumption in Mexico and Latin America.

SF Corp. has initiated the development of technology and outreach efforts aimed at enabling widespread transformation of bottling operations in Mexico by targeting effective methods to shift large scale beverage industry suppliers away from sugar-loaded sodas in the country. These efforts are being led at Stevia First by Fernando Rodriguez Orozco, a senior process engineer that has worked exclusively within the Coca-Cola supply chain in Mexico for 20 years, including the installation of sugar processing facilities that total more than 300 thousand tons of annual production.

As detailed in a 2013 report by Credit Suisse, Type 2 diabetes is the leading cause of death in Mexico. The country ranks second in the world in adult obesity, first in type 2 diabetes, and fourth in infant obesity. Mexico ranks second globally in added sugar consumption per person and second in the amount of soft drinks consumed per person. Approximately 95% of soft drinks consumed are full-calorie, sugar-loaded drinks. As a result, in 2014 a nationwide tax on sugary drinks went into effect.

CEO Robert Brooke stated “Sugar-sweetened beverage taxes and increasing public health awareness is leading to marked shifts in consumer habits in Mexico, the U.S., and elsewhere. As a company, we are positioned ideally to enable these healthy changes through the use of stevia in particular, which as a zero-calorie natural sweetener we believe will be part of the solution for decades to come.”
