Stevia Hellas is shifting towards sustainable development by launching the Sustainability for All program. The program, which has already been partly implemented by the cooperative, is expected to officially start this September, with a commitment to achieve all its goals by 2030. The program was designed with the well-being of the cooperative’s producers and the society in mind, with the aim of helping producers, suppliers and customers make more sustainable and responsible choices and as a result conserve natural resources and produce healthy products. In fact, the cooperative has already set measurable targets for its success, emphasizing that its effectiveness will set an example for other cooperatives and companies. Namely, Stevia Hellas already implements sustainable development principles and will gradually fulfill 15 of the 17 SDG Goals, with the main objective to raise consumer and producer awareness towards the environment and turn the focus to more sustainable options.
“Our cooperative has provided 40 families in the region with the means to shift towards the cultivation of stevia, a healthy product which requires much less natural resources for its cultivation,” states Mr Christos Stamatis, CEO of the coop.
