May 6: Armstrong Produce Tour
Founded in 1979, Armstrong Produce has grown from a small family-run wholesale business into Hawaii’s leading produce wholesaler and distributor. With locations in Honolulu, Kona & Kahului, Armstrong Produce supplies a wide range of customers, from local chefs to big box retailers, with fresh produce every day.
Armstrong Produce is committed to sourcing the freshest produce at the best prices. The company prides itself on having built a network of partners that procure produce from around the world. Once the produce arrives in their facilities, they uphold the highest food safety standards to ensure that safe, high-quality produce is delivered to customers. Looking back at 80 years in the produce business, starting at the family farm in the 1920s, the company understands the importance of supporting local growers. Local farmers are an integral part of Hawaii’s community, economy and food supply, and the company is pleased to source fruits and vegetables from over 100 local farmers across the state. Our hostess for this visit was Tisha Uyehara, the Director of Marketing and Food Safety.
