Products Made in Hawaii, distributed solely in Hawaii, or unique to Hawaii.

HONOLULU — Twenty-five Hawaii companies hoping to get into the military commissary system will be first-time exhibitors at the annual American Logistics Hawaii Food Show Aug. 22 at the Hawaii Prince Hotel.

Eighty companies snapped up exhibitor space at the event that seeks to get local products into the Defense Commissary Agency system in Hawaii and elsewhere. This year’s first-time exhibitors all are food companies, said Sharon Zambo-Fan, volunteer chairwoman for the 17th consecutive year.

They follow a host of other Hawaii companies who exhibited at the business-to-business show, got through all the paperwork and inspections, and boosted manufacturing to meet the new customer demand.  Erika Engle | Star Advertiser | July 13, 2012 Read more>
