The European Dairy Industry Outlook to 2020

A must-have report for all involved in the European dairy industry.

SWEETENERS

How Will Stevia Change the Sweeteners Market?
Stevia's arrival in the international sweeteners market is almost certain to shake up the entire area of sugar replacement, but the big question is whether it will erode volumes of existing high-intensity sweeteners or will settle comfortably alongside them with its broader focus on balanced wellness rather than dieting. In order to answer that question, this report explores the background, current status and future directions for stevia sweeteners.
