Removal of Restriction on PureCircle Stevia Imports into the U.S.


PureCircle (LSE: PURE), the world's leading producer and marketer of high purity stevia ingredients, welcomes confirmation that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection ('CBP') has removed PureCircle from the Withhold Release Order ('WRO').  The company's trade with its U.S. based customers, which represented one third of the company's sales in its last financial year, can now resume on a regular basis.

Commenting, the Group CEO Magomet Malsagov said: 

"We understand, and fully support, the CBP's commitment to ensuring that forced labour is never used in the production of any products imported into the USA. We are pleased that this matter has been rigorously investigated and that PureCircle has been cleared by the CBP. 

This experience has only reinforced our commitment to human rights and fair labour practices in any of our markets as well as strengthened our capabilities in providing traceability and transparency as the stevia industry's only vertically integrated natural supply chain."
