OUR STRONGHOLD & Capabilities
Innovation and science is at our core, we know that to be competitive, stay relevant, and be able deliver our promises to our stakeholders, research, development and innovation must live in all of us . Our teams works endless hours to make imagination turn into innovation to discover and create what's possible.
At Jia, we act and live by what we believe to achieve our single, most important, goal: to leave the world and our country better than were we found it. We aim to be the world's most dependable provider of stevia, and to be known for our traceability, our closeness and care for nature, our communities, and our team by providing equal opportunities for all.
We took it upon ourselves to understand all the varieties, building the largest bank of stevia varieties understanding what makes each plant special, unique and what qualities we look for in how each varieties reacts to climate changes, to sun, to water and all the factors that affect their taste.
We aim to emulate nature, by looking to deliberately design processes which help waste materials be used as biofuels. We are the first plant in Guatemala that will use natural gas.
We are the only plant where used water is replenished into our own plants to reduce water consumption. You won't find this process in any other stevia plant in the world, since their plantations and production lines are in different locations.
We are the only stevia processing plant that has control over the complete chain: from when the plant starts as a small seed (by the way, Jia means seed in Mayan) until it grows into a full stevia plant. This allows us to know exactly where it's been, who worked on it and trace all of its production process … by keeping track of all of this, we can keep our quality promises.
Technology is at the backbone of our operations, everything from precision agriculture, to Blockchain implementation are some of the initiatives where we are leveraging technology to make sure we have the very best product in the world.
Improving customer satisfaction from the ground up.
