Sustainability

What began as a company focused on a niche market of growing and distributing Asian vegetables, has transformed into a multi-state, wholesale distribution operation that procures thousands of fresh, sustainable products throughout the year.

Sanwa has been a strong partner with the state of Florida on numerous projects. Like, working jointly with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to renovate and revitalize the Sanford State Farmers Market. Additionally, Sanwa served as the pilot farm for the state’s “Whole Farm Plan” project.
