This makes us so very happy and has given us ever more encouragement to persevere, to grow and to create good things for our community. It confirms our focus to keep our methods pono, our integrity as our priority and thereby bring the delicious. It is truly ʻĀina that is the hero- our work is to help this ʻĀina win – apparently many of you folks agree that is important for Kauaʻi, and that is the very best part of this acknowledgement.
