Virtual Lunch & Learn: Solutions for Clean Label Sugar Reduction

April 29, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About this Event

Thom King, founder, CEO, and Food Scientist, will be presenting on the health and clean-label benefits of sugar alternatives which can meet Ketogenic, Diabetic, Paleo, and Sugar-free product solutions.

Thom King, part CEO, part personal development wonk and part biohacker info geek, is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. He follows a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. Thom’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”

Founded by Thom in 1999, Steviva Brands Inc. is one of the largest importers, manufacturers and distributors of clean-label sweetening systems and natural sweeteners. Thom started his company by first asking the critical question, “Why?” Based on the understanding that it’s only by determining the “why” of what you want to do that you can achieve lasting success, Thom’s business isn’t simply something he does for a living. It stands as a testament to who he is, what he does and how he lives his life.

Thom also founded Icon Foods in 1990, where he continues to be involved in the day-to-day operations and can be found anywhere from schlepping 50-pound bags of bulk sweetener in the manufacturing plant to answering the phone in the company’s front offices. Whether at special events, in grocery stores or through social media, he truly enjoys speaking with consumers and learning how Icon Foods has made a difference in their lives. He has personally developed and tested many of the recipes incorporating Icon Foods products.
