“During the food show, we look for products that reflect the unique tastes and culture of the Hawaiian Islands to satisfy the huge demand military shoppers have for products made in Hawaii.”
Local companies interested in selling to the military commissaries can sign up to participate in the American Logistics Hawaii Show, August 22, Hawaii Prince Hotel. The cost to schedule a booth at the show is $495 and includes one ticket to the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) meeting on August 23.
The ALA Hawaii show is the annual opportunity for worldwide Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) buyers to touch, smell, and taste Hawaii products as they consider adding new items for sale in the Commissary system. The buyers’ evaluation involves hours of structured taste-testing and one-on-one discussions with companies to find products that best satisfy commissary shoppers.
The show is open to buyers only.
