The Steviva Company was founded in February of 1999 by Thomas
J. King. Thom King had been involved with the stevia market
since 1989 when he came in contact with Jim May, the founder
of Wisdom of the Ancients. Back then the FDA and a complete
ban on the importation of stevia and stevia extracts.
When the FDA finally lifted their ban on the importation
of Stevia, King started exploring the possibilities of importing
it himself. In 1998 a source for clean pure stevia was located
and importation began.
Steviva, stevia is bottled locally in Woodland Hills, California
which is 15 miles east of Malibu in the San Fernando Valley.
After an amazing reception by the Internet healthy community
King started to increase the Steviva product line to include
an assortment of products to help people with dieting, aging
and general good health and well being.
