Local, Natural, and Healthy Food is Best Food
Kunoa believes that whenever possible the food eaten in Hawaii should be born, raised, and processed here. In an ideal system, animals are nourished naturally on vegetative forages, humanely handled, and butchered locally. This is our goal—to help foster an agricultural landscape that supports local farmers growing quality food for their island neighbors . This philosophy, combined with our commitment to land stewardship, holistic management, and renewable energy aims to honor the culture of Hawaii and positions Kunoa and our communities for a truly sustainable future.

Producing more local food and doing it in a way that honors Hawaii’s natural and cultural resources is not the job of one company. It will be the result of sustained commitment and collaboration between producers, consumers, politicians, activists, and more. At Kunoa, we are working to do our part in fueling the shift to local food and re-energizing the market around Hawaii beef. Having purchased and invested heavily in the state’s largest butchery on Oahu, Kunoa is opening new options for Hawaii ranchers, supporting a pathway for more cattle to be raised for local consumption—and allowing it to be done at a lower cost, keeping more ranchers, more jobs, and more land in agriculture.
That leaves the most important player: YOU, the Hawaii consumer. You drive change with your decisions and with your pocket book. If you believe in a self-sufficient Hawaii, a Hawaii that can stand free, please support your local farmers, ranchers, and food companies. Together we can create a healthy and sustainable future for our islands!
