All of us here at Foodland were thrilled to learn that we were voted “best grocery store” by readers of Honolulu Magazine. What a tremendous honor this is – especially during a year in which we were faced not only with having to close our Hawaii Kai store after nearly 50 years, but also with mass merchants like WalMart and Target selling more food and our competitors opening new stores right near ours. We know that you have more choices than ever of where you do your grocery shopping, ... more »
When our annual Share a Holiday Feast program launched on November 1st, we wondered how well we’d do this year, considering Hawaii’s struggling economy. We could only hope we would raise as much we did as last year ($96,226.17) to help those in need enjoy a holiday meal with their families. We shouldn’t have been surprised when the final donations were calculated – after all, people in Hawaii have always been more than generous for good ... more »

Many customers have reached out to us with questions about green onions in our Foodland stores and we wanted to let all of our customers know that the recent cease of sales from Wong Hon Hin farms does not impact any products we carry.
The Department of Health required Wong Hon Hin Farms in Waianae to destroy and dispose of approximately 800 pounds of fresh Green Onions today due to presence of an unapproved pesticide found on the product. While we do buy product from Wong Hon Hin ... more »
Many customers have reached out to us with questions about packaged salad in our Foodland stores and we wanted to let all of our customers know that the recall does not impact any products we carry.
The bagged salad in question with potential Salmonella contamination was found at Taylor Farms, and the voluntary precautionary recall applies only to products that were not shipped to Hawaii. We currently do carry Taylor Farms Organic Baby Spinach Salad in the 5 oz. bag, which ... more »
Many customers have reached out to us with questions about the cantaloupe in our Foodland stores and we wanted to let all of our customers know that the recall does not impact any products we carry.
The cantaloupe in question with strains of listeriosis come from a farm in Colorado. All of our mainland cantaloupe comes from farms in California so none of our products are part of this recall.
For customers who have questions or want to read more about the recall here is a ... more »

Well, it's that time to challenge ourselves to eating 100% local again! I don't know about you, but I found the 2010 Kanu Hawaii Eat Local Challenge to be fun and really enlightening. As you may recall, last year I wrote recipes that were mostly local, but this year, I thought that some of you may want to step it up a notch and decide to go 100% local.
