This comes a year after Cargill and DSM announced the JV formation. The stevia sweetener will be marketed under the "EverSweet" brand, the one originally developed between Cargill and Evolva that first came to the market in March 2018. Although Evolva's role appears to have diminished, it is still owed royalties for all EverSweet products sold. Despite stumbling blocks along the way, this should be perceived as a win for fermentation-made ingredients. The approach allows for the production of ingredients that 1) are difficult to obtain from nature and 2) provide a consumer-facing benefit. The Cargill-DSM JV exemplifies this, honing in on Reb M and Reb D, which have an exceptional sweetness profile without a bitter aftertaste.
