What Our Members
Are Saying

HFMA has been a tremendous resource for my business, Choco le`a, over the past seven years. They are an organization that truly cares about others' success offering a variety of ongoing learning opportunities, connection to our community, and have become business friends I am extremely grateful for."
Erin Kanno Uehara
Owner & CCO of Choco le`a
We've been members of the HFMA for years now and consider it really valuable in a number of ways, especially as a growing small business. The biggest is perhaps the camaraderie with other food manufacturers here around the common problems we all face. The Hawaiian spirit of aloha and kokua is alive here and everyone is generous in exchanging advice, contacts, resources. In addition, leadership has consistently worked to increase the value of membership, for example, by organizing education opportunities with subject-matter experts which we have found very valuable. We very much look forward to when we can return to in-person gatherings and can see our friends again, old and new.
