“These awards solidify what we already knew, in that we have some of the best products available on the market. The recognition of our produce is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team here at Red Sun,” Carlos Visconti, CEO of Canada and United States Operations, said.
At the end of the fierce, yet neighborly, competition, Red Sun Farms received the following awards:
- 1st place - Best Hothouse Mini Seedless Cucumbers - Red Sun Farms Mini Cucumbers
- 2nd place - Best Hothouse Cluster tomato - Red Sun Farms Specialty Tomatoes on the Vine
- 1st place - Best Hothouse Roma Tomatoes - Red Sun Farms Roma Tomatoes

Along with the efforts of the powerhouse team at Red Sun, the company also credited its vertically-integrated business model to the wins, noting the model helps ensure the highest level of quality in all Red Sun products.
According to a press release, all funds raised from the Greenhouse Competitions go to R.E.A.C.H. International. The R.E.A.CH. charity is responsible for raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to build schools and clinics, drill water wells, and sponsor and care for impoverished children in Uganda, Africa. Red Sun Farms is also a supporter of the R.E.A.C.H. charity, supporting not only through its involvement in the competition, but also through its sponsorship of the event.
Cheers to another year of showcasing award-winning flavor to our colleagues at Red Sun Farms.
