SunWest has concentrated on the processing and marketing of conventional and organically grown California rice and wild rice.
The rice industry annually produces nearly 2.5 million tons of rice making it the second largest rice growing state in the nation behind Arkansas. California’s ideal climate, ample water supply and innovative farming techniques result in some of the highest rice yields in the world along with incredibly high quality.
Wild Rice was introduced into California in the late 1970’s and today nearly 50% of the world’s supply originates in California.
SunWest is a marketer of nuts purchased from California & U.S. handlers as well as from importers of unique nuts from around the world. California walnuts, almonds and pistachios are sold world wide and command a premium for their quality and the industry’s food safety record.
