Stezo Importers Distributors

Stezo Importers Distributors is a Toronto-based company, founded by Steef Zoetmulder in 1989. In that same year, Steef began working with Jade Industries Inc., importing Rubber Anchor™ (non-slip rug under-padding) for Canadian Distribution.

In 2002, Jade Industries created JadeYoga™ to market the first natural rubber yoga mats. Steef was asked to represent JadeYoga™ in Canada; a logical extension of their trusted business relationship. Today, Stezo continues to be the exclusive Canadian Importer and Distributor of the JadeYoga™ line of products.

As a nature, health and fitness enthusiast, Steef greatly enjoys his involvement in the yoga industry. Since immigrating to Canada from the Netherlands, Steef has also held professional careers in landscape architecture, tennis instruction and commodity brokerage. Steef visits his home country regularly to spend time with family and friends. He also enjoys yoga, tennis, table tennis, running and his annual wilderness canoe trip.

Awards & Recognition – Trees for the Future

The executive director of Trees for the Future presented this certificate of Tree Planting to Steef in honour of the 34615 trees that were panted on behalf of STEZO IMPORTERS. This village project is being implemented to save the homes and way of life of people around the world, devastated by deforestation and, increasingly, global climate change.

These fast-growing, permanent, beneficial trees will help to protect these fragile and eroded lands and assure that families can continue to live in dignity and in harmony with the natural resources of their lands.”
