Stevia Nutra Corporation (OTC:BB STNT) – (The Company)
, an Agro-Management company focused on stevia agronomics is pleased to announce that it has successfully acquired 50 acres of prime agricultural land in Cambodia for its new innovative Stevia Propagation Centre (SPC).
The property is located just outside the town of Kampong Speu, in close proximity to the country’s capital city and commercial hub of Phnom Penh, and the coastal port of Sihanoukville. This advantageous location is expected to provide the Company with lucrative import and export opportunities, enabling it to capitalize on the explosive demand for this all-natural, zero calorie sweetener. From this location, all cultivation and research and development activities will be coordinated to support the planned expansion to 5,000 acres.
“We are thrilled to have secured this exceptional site for our Southeast Asia Stevia Propagation Centre,” said President Brian Dicks. “We chose Cambodia as the hub of our operations based on its ideal climate, our relationships in the region, the proximity to markets and the strong local support for agro development projects.”
“The land is perfect for stevia growth,” said Chief Agronomist Dr. El-Sheikh. “I have been working on stevia cultivation and propagation for the past 17 years and I have not encountered such optimal conditions. Our access to clean ground-water and facilities make this particular location ideal for our Stevia Propagation Centre.”
