POINT ROBERTS, WA - February 21, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors issues an exclusive Q&A interview with industry leader, Sunwin Stevia International, Inc. ( OTCQB : SUWN ). Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia, discusses its distribution and equity agreement with WILD Flavors, the recent approval for stevia in Canada and their new manufacturing upgrades and product development in preparation of a growing global demand for stevia.

Q: Investorideas.com

For investors unfamiliar with your history with WILD Flavors GmbH, one of the world's leading privately-owned manufacturers of natural ingredients for the food and beverage industry, can you give us a brief overview of the equity and distribution agreement and how WILD plays a key role in your growth strategy?

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

As one of the biggest shareholders and investors in Sunwin Stevia International ( OTCQB : SUWN ), WILD Flavors has been dedicated to the ongoing development and marketing of Sunwin Stevia™. They have had success in gaining customer acceptance of Sunwin's brand, making use of their natural Taste Optimization Technology and excellent resources, especially in European markets. WILD Flavors and Sunwin have been cooperating to create new formulations, adopting advanced technologies to provide products with the best quality and taste. WILD has taken the role as a leader and a collaborator in the international marketing of Sunwin Stevia.

Q: Investorideas.com

Canada recently approved stevia as an ingredient in the food and beverage industry -- how does this impact companies like yours and the future of the industry?

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

Sunwin has been preparing for the possible entry into Canadian markets for quite some time and now has some very good customer resources in place. The approval will allow Sunwin to further expand the scope of its market in North America, strengthen the awareness and promotion of stevia, and increase emerging customers.

Q: Investorideas.com

The company recently announced new high tech manufacturing upgrades in anticipation of future growth -- can you give investors insight as to the capacity of the new production lines and some of the key improvements made?

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

Our new product lines include a high A3 product line, a stevia product line and a granule stevia production line with 500 tons annual capacity each. With the adjustment of relative technique standards, the production is more efficient and the quality of the product is strengthened as well. Take granule products for instance, we adopted the new advanced technical formula from WILD and the efficient boiling granulating technology highly expands the potential industry use of the stevia products.

Q: Investorideas.com

The Company announced in January it is now capable of producing high quality A3-99 stevia products. What are the market opportunities for this stevia extract and how are you targeting them?

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

A3-99 is the highest quality of the REB A products in stevia industry. The ability to produce A3-99 illustrates that Sunwin has made huge progress and a significant break in the stevia manufacturing technique. The biggest difference between A3-99 products and other lower level products is the taste. A3-99 will be targeting customers with high demand for better taste quality.

Q: Investorideas.com

In late November you announced that you have started marketing six of the proprietary formulations developed in conjunction with WILD Flavors, Inc. to food manufacturers in China. What kind of growth opportunities do you see within China?

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

Currently, the Chinese stevia market is in a development period, so the opportunity is still very much in front of us. The 6 formula is not only important for our marketing strategy, but also key to future cooperation with potential new customers. Having a full line of products, formulations and services, is a great competitive advantage for Sunwin as we enter the market.

Q: Investorideas.com

In closing, as a leader in the industry, what are you seeing in terms of new products coming to market using stevia and do you anticipate the overall growth to continue moving forward? (For example, Packaged Facts, a US Research firm estimates the world stevia market between $800m and $2bn in 2011 and industry leaders have predicted that REB A may reach as high as $10bn over the next few years.)

A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO

From a global perspective, as a new natural sweetener, stevia is becoming familiar and accepted by a growing number of organizations and consumers. We are seeing it in beverages, baking, ice cream and new products are announced all the time.

The market has increased substantially by the approval for stevia in the EU and Canada. We are very optimistic about the continuing growth of stevia products and look forward to new countries approving its use .The potential global stevia market and business opportunity is bigger than we ever imagined years ago when we were first started producing and marketing our lines.
