With 5,400 sq m of new space, Sinwa's warehousing capacity has doubled. In terms of pallets, storage capacity increased by 400%.

All this supports Sinwa's revenue growth, and enables it to buy in bulk -- and at lower cost -- stuff that its customers need.

In addition to staple items, Sinwa also stocks special ethnic ingredients and foods for the needs of multinational crews of vessels.
