Power woman of the year 2017
Susan Jansen is the driving force behind Greensweet-stevia and was chosen by Lucinda as PowerVrouw of the year 2017. Susan imports various products, including liquid Stevia and sugar-free Belgian chocolate sweetened with Stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener of the Stevia plant and perfect to use as a sugar substitute, without calories and
artificial sweeteners. The liquid Stevia is ideal for sweetening your coffee, tea, water, yogurt or cottage cheese. But you can also bake with this natural sweetener, because it stays stable up to 200˚C. Besides liquid Stevia, the assortment consists of powder, tablets and Belgian chocolate with Stevia.
Susan says: " In my vlog I tell you how my company Greensweet-stevia came into being. I import and sell sugar substitutes and that turned out to be a success within a short time. The first bottles of Stevia I provided with a label at the kitchen table, but now that is past time. Greensweet-stevia has more than 500 sales points in the Benelux within 4 years and continues to grow. "
