With a combination of several mass-market and about 15 regional brands of artificial sweeteners -- and sales in more than 90 countries worldwide -- the Merisant Company finds life sweet indeed. It is the manufacturer of aspartame-based products, such as Equal, Canderel, and Sweet Simplicity. It also makes Pure Via, a sweetener derived from the stevia plant. Merisant's customers include retail grocery stores, pharmacies, food wholesalers, foodservice distributors and operators, and other food manufacturers. And although the little blue packets of Equal are ubiquitous throughout the US, more than half of Merisant's sales come from other countries.
