Whether you are graduating from high school or college, Foodland is your graduation headquarters for this momentous occasion. From Haku lei, which sit upon one’s head like a floral crown, to the traditional Orchid or Ti Leaf variety, you’ll find ... more »
The Road to Hāna, Maui is a gorgeous scenic drive connecting Kahului, where Maui's main airport resides (Route 36), to the remote town of Hāna (Route 360), and wrapping it's way down to the south side of the island (Route 31).

Fortunately for us, you can get a taste of Hāna at select Foodland stores without having to ... more »
One of the things that our wine expert, Ed the Prince of Pau Hana, has been working really hard at doing is dialing up the variety and selection of our wines.
We've had many discussions about finding wines that may not be found in your typical grocery store and drink at a quality level three times the price you pay.
As our company celebrates its 63rd anniversary this week, I can’t help but think about what it must have been like on May 6th, 1948 when our founders, Irish immigrant “Sully” Sullivan and his Chinese immigrant future mother-in law, “Mama” Lau opened the doors to the first Foodland at the corner of Kapiolani and Harding Avenues in Honolulu.

Do you like the sweet, delicious, crisp texture of a Japanese Cucumber?
If you do, then you have got to try these Mini Cucumbers grown in Kahuku by Ho Farms.
They are basically a mini version of the local favorite, Japanese Cucumber, and are great to add to salads or use in sushi. I like the fresh crispness so much, I just add a little salt and eat them right out of the hand.
