Selling Hawaii products through this distribution route provides a great opportunity for Hawaii manufacturers to increase sales locally with the possibility of growing their business beyond Hawaii. DeCA grosses over $6 billion dollars annually and Hawaii commissaries do over $280 million dollars annually. Products from 11 new companies were picked up in 2013. Of the eleven new companies, two are from Maui, two are from Kauai, one is from the Big Island and one is from Molokai.
