Raw Materials

Farmers make a significant contribution to sustainability and environmental compatibility.

Only the sustainably cultivated and used raw material ensures the supply of raw materials in the long term.

In a nutshell, this means that the system of renewable raw materials must have the possibility of natural regeneration. Only in this way can we ensure that future generations can use them in the same way as the current generation.

Sustainability has been successfully applied for more than 300 years and includes not only ecological, economic but also social aspects, for example for small farmers.

According to the World Bank, around 1.5 billion people live in small farming households worldwide.
As a rule, they have little production aid. A small farmer is a farmer with few production factors such as machinery.

These farmers make a not inconsiderable contribution to sustainability and environmental compatibility in the following areas:

  • Increasing the range of crops and biodiversity
  • Climate protection
  • Conservation of raw materials
  • Structural change in rural areas

The sustainable production and use of renewable raw materials can help to strengthen value-added and employment, especially in rural areas, both in raw material production and in first processing.

A special importance for the STEVIA GROUP is the secure and sustainable supply of raw materials while protecting the climate and small farming structures.

So, we as a company can also contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
