Ramar Foods building new facility in Hawaii
KAPOLEI, Hawaii — Filipino American Ramar Foods is marking its 50th anniversary as “America’s #1 most trusted Filipino food company” by breaking ground for a brand-new, custom facility in Kapolei.
Ramar Foods has catered to the communities and businesses on the islands of Hawai’i for two decades, opening its first office in the mid-1990s near the Honolulu Airport.
The whole new facility will customized for the growing needs of the Ramar’s Hawaii market. In the state, Ramar acquired the Hawaiian company Bel Air Distributors, a dry goods distributor to many outlets, furthering Ramar Foods’ reach among major retailers. The company immersed itself in the local market of Hawai’i, learning local business customs and being respectful of traditions that are essential to building business relationships on the islands.
“We are grateful to the communities that we served on all islands in Hawai’i,” said Michael Medina, the assistant branch and sales manager of Ramar Foods. “We are committed to invest not just in a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, but also even in better products that would nourish the communities while celebrating our family food legacy.”
