There is a rich history of palaka in Hawaiʻi. It's a story that connects us all. Our Papa was born on the Waialua plantation. His father worked at the quarry, and he would share fond memories of his mother making kala soup. It was his favorite, he said. He learned to swim in the water reservoirs as kids, and later became two-time state football champions. Go Bulldogs! Palaka today helps us to recall such memories and connect with our past.
We hope that Kahui Palaka and the products we make remind you of the legacy of hard work, perseverance and community that we share.
