I’ve come to realize that as a kama`aina company, Foodland truly cares about our community and the place we call home. In one of our meetings, someone reported that an average Hawaii family uses more than 700 plastic bags a year for grocery shopping. With more than 400,000 Hawaii households, that’s more than 280,000,000 plastic bags a year! We knew that we needed to work towards changing those statistics.
If you are looking for a lemon or orange soda with that unique European flavor profile, look no further than San Pellegrino's juice-laden sparklers, Limonata (lemon) and Aranciata (orange). Each serving contains 16% real fruit and only pure cane sugar (no corn syrups).
Twelve years ago, a few weeks before Thanksgiving, one of our Maui customers shared a wonderful idea with us. While shopping at our Pukalani store, she had purchased several extra turkeys and asked our store director to give them to needy families in the area. She called to tell us that she believed other customers would like to do the same, and asked whether Foodland could help make it possible.
We have been working hard to add more features to our site and make it an even better experience for all of our customers. We are excited to have launched our Online Shop to help you with all of your Holiday gifts and allow you to order our products anytime and anywhere throughout the US.
We have heard from many of our customers that they are excited to get a "taste of the islands" from many locations throughout the mainland where they now live.
This morning a customer asked me if we carry any Asti Spumante….
In years past Martini and Rossi Asti Spumante was a popular version of this sweet wine from Italy.
Most of those sales have moved to “Moscato D’ Asti” in the past few years.
Following the international wine naming process.. it is a Moscato ( grape varietal) produced in the Asti region of Italy.
This… “Moscato D’ Asti”
Sweet, crisp, low alcohol… and delicious.
It is the wine we recommend ... more »

I love the holiday season and things kick into high gear on Thanksgiving. Even though it is a fun time, it can be a stressful one when it comes to getting the dinner together.
Here are a few tips that can help to make this a time you can enjoy your company instead of stress in the kitchen.
Planning is key. Don't try to make everything on Thanksgiving day. If you layer your tasks, you can spread most of the work over the course of the week.
Do you have children that don’t like to eat their fruits & vegetables? Do they kick and scream if you place a carrot or some broccoli on their plate? If so, please check out FoodChamps.org. While I can't say that they'll be begging for brussels sprouts or green beans, it sure is a fun site to learn about fruits & vegetables, and hopefully encourage them to try different ones. I must admit that I had a great time exploring this site ... more »
