About Us

Zawgyi’s success-oriented local expertise makes it a reliable partner for foreign investors in sustainable
sourcing, trading, logistics and distribution

Zawgyi started its operations in Myanmar in 2003 at a time when trading activities were limited in the country. From a small trading entity that dealt in the import of consumer goods and food products from bordering countries, the company has come a long way. In a short span of 14 years, it has expanded its portfolio to include a wide-range of leading-edge services – from sustainable sourcing of agricultural and consumer products to logistics, trading and distribution – thereby transforming itself into a multi-million dollar business that continues to contribute momentously to the national economy.

Zawgyi’s superior track record of maintaining long-term relationships with its customers is one of the hallmarks of its success. The company’s commitment to sustainability and innovation has enabled it to pioneer best practices that have set new benchmarks in responsible sourcing. This has paved way for long-term collaborations with leading multinational companies who see Zawgyi as a reliable partner in growth. As a result, Zawgyi today stands a leading supplier of agricultural products to Europe and Asia, and importer of foodstuff and consumer products for the Myanmar market.

Business Partnership

We maintain a close relationship with our farmers and do our best to educate them.
This “grow together” partnership has helped both parties benefit immensely from the collaboration.

We are working hand-in-hand as a partner with one of the world biggest Palm Sugar buyers helping them achieve traceability and sustainability through its supply. We believe it is an endeavor which will increase the quality of palm sugar produced in Myanmar – raising it up to International standards - and improving the livelihood of Myanmar Palm Sugar farmers.

Our program began in 2012 with one farmer and just a year later, in 2013, it had grown to 170 farmers who have been trained by us and who are supplying to us. By 2015, our network expanded to encompass 2500 farmers from 53 villages as the palm sugar business registered tremendous growth, generating revenues up to US$ 5.8 million. At our new collection center in Bagan-Nyaung U, we employ over 150 workers, majority of whom are women.

Our goal is to educate as many farmers as possible; enabling them to produce quality palm sugar that develops into a successful business they can survive on. We aspire to uplift their socio-economic status by transforming them from overworked farmers with crops unfit for the global marketplace into educated and successful cultivators with profitable exports.
