Snack Hawaii History
Snack Hawaii is a family owned and operated business with over 25 years of experience in providing healthy enjoyable snacks to our valued customers here in Hawaii. Our parent company, Asia Trans & Co., is located in Kona on the "Big Island" of beautiful Hawaii. Founded in the 1980s, the concept of Snack Hawaii was initially conceived after the invention and sale of what we refer to here in Hawaii as "crack seed," also known as Asian dried fruits.
Due to the increasing popularity of "crack seed" among local customers and residents, the demand for our products quickly began to grow. At first, these dried fruits were first sold and processed in small batches directly out of our local restaurant here in Hawaii, where we packaged everything by hand. The work was tedious, but our customers loved the product so we worked hard to meet the growing demand.
Eventually, our family decided to leave the restaurant business in pursuit of delivering these popular dried fruits to local retail stores. As "crack seed" continued to grow in popularity, so did we. The growing demand for "crack seed" rapidly led us into the distribution industry and into our very own distribution business, selling everything from our specialty dried fruits to snacks and beverages.
