A PERCENTAGE OF EVERY ALOHA GROWN SALE GOES BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY.

We are committed to supporting efforts to care for our island, our people and our culture.
A percentage of every sale going back to the community, which awards local nonprofits, schools, organizations and initiatives that embody our philosophy…
