What We Do
Think Globally, Act Locally.
We’re part of a global community that shares a common vision: improving agriculture, improving lives. We work daily to help farmers tackle some of their toughest problems – like insect damage and drought – and gain real benefits, such as higher yields and a softer environmental footprint. We’re also dedicated to being a good neighbor, by being a great employer, supporting local schools and non-profits, helping farmers in Hawaii and being responsible stewards of the land and community.
How do we help agriculture?
Among other things, by developing new varieties of plants that are, for instance, protected against certain insects, more resistant to diseases, able to better tolerate drought or help provide better nutrition. Our farms in Hawaii play an important role in this effort, and we use a variety of safe and excellent agricultural tools. Our farms run like any other farm in Hawaii using regenerative, conventional and biotechnology methods. We’re active in Hawaii’s larger agricultural community, and support important initiatives that promote sustainable local farming, protect farmers and ranchers from theft and other crimes, and encourage Hawaii’s future ag leaders through education.
Our Employee Ohana
Our employee ohana includes approximately 850 local residents on Maui, Molokai and Oahu. Many of us grew up on farms or have devoted our careers to farming. One of our core values is to support the communities where we operate. We do this by supporting and encouraging our employees to give their time and energy generously to local causes. We’re honored to have been named one of the best companies to work for multiple times over the past several years.
