Our quality process involves full cooperation and close communication between our suppliers and our
team. This guarantees that we are all working together to deliver our customers the best product
with the reliability they have come to expect.
We constantly examine our own processes in stores, warehouses, and offices, looking to improve the
way we do things. It is a long-standing, constant and evolving program consisting of stringent
product standards and in-depth evaluation programs. This way we guarantee we have the best product
possible to deliver to our customers.
We periodically conduct food safety and quality audits to ensure that we maintain our high standards.
Raw ingredients, plant-water quality, pest control and the cleanliness of equipment are just
a few of the conditions we review with every inspection.
In an effort to keep compliant with all food safety regulations and guarantee our products to our
customers, Sanwa has developed food safety requirements with the help of Azzule Systems.
These mandatory requirements extend to all fresh produce items regardless of brand or label.
Food Safety professionals work in cooperation with our valued suppliers to design, develop and
implement Food Safety and Quality Assurance Programs that ensure consistent product quality,
compliance with applicable FDA and USDA regulations, and alignment with Sanwa’s product
standards and specifications.
Sanwa expects all suppliers of fresh fruits and vegetables to have GAP and GMP systems in place and
be audited annually by an approved independent third party auditor and/or certification body
with results above 90%. This includes every ranch, harvest crew, cooler, and packing house.
