Celebrating the Rich Heritages of Hawai‘i's Mixed Cultures
Before the different peoples of Hawai‘i began learning each others' languages and creating pidgin, they created bonds by sharing their lunches. Food in Hawaiian and local cultures is more than just for sustenance. It is a way to celebrate seasons and commemorate events, nurture the soul, and for communities to strengthen their bonds and extend care and aloha in ways beyond words. We draw inspiration from local flavors and hope our products help you to perpetuate those sentiments.
Lovingly Grown and Made in Hawaiʻi Nei by Local Mahiʻai
The 100% Hawaiian cacao we use for our chocolates comes from our very own Honoli‘i Estate Farm, for a true Tree-to-Bar chocolate experience! We are a "no spray" farm, using agroforestry and permaculture practices to lessen our impact on the land. This is to create a healthier growing environment for our crops, and healthier foods for you!
Our co-founder and Master Mahi‘ai (farmer), Tom, has been farming on Oahu, Maui and Big Island over 4 decades, traveling the world to share his experience as a consultant and learn from other cultures. Those connections have turned into wonderful partnerships with other local mahi‘ai, who's products we are proud to source and offer to you.
Encouraging Conservation and Self Sustainable Growth Within the Islands
Hawai‘i is our home, and it is our kuleana (responsibility) to mālama ‘āina (care for the land) as much as it cares and provides for us. We strive to balance this stewardship with the growing need for fresh, healthy foods in our communities and to ensure food stability for future generations.
