FROM THE PAST TO PRESENT TARO BRAND 

PERPETUATING POI TO THE NEXT GENERATION!

 
 
 

PROUDLY SERVING HAWAII...

HONOLULU POI COMPANY was founded in 1946 by Kakuichi Tottori as a small poi milling operation with only three employees. In 1950, son James took over and was joined by his son Ernest in 1952. As the company prospered, sprouts and processed vegetables were added. The company name was changed in 1990 to HPC Foods, Ltd. to better reflect the growing diversity of its business. And now, seventy years later, the fourth generation, working with over 180 employees, continues to provide quality products for Hawai‘i and beyond. Throughout its history, local farmers have played an important role in the success of the company. As noted by Ernest back in 1978, my “Grandfather’s concept was to develop more local industry. And my Dad’s concept was to help preserve farmers in Hawai‘i”. “This is what made Honolulu Poi: Looking at the future and working together with our farmers in the state”. This sentiment still rings true today as the company continues its commitment to working to support our local farmers.

FACTS...

The use of poi is said to have led Captain James Cook and other early western visitors to Hawaii to describe native Hawaiians as being an exceptionally healthy people.
