Since then, it has been focusing on efficiency, product line innovation and building a presence on the islands of Hawai’i, and this upcoming move to a brand new facility showcases their efforts to streamline their internal system and productivity.

With a whole new facility customized to fit their needs, Ramar Foods will be prepared to serve the growing needs of the many businesses and communities that they have been serving for over half of their lifetime across all of the islands of Hawai’i. They have achieved many feats within their time in Hawai’i, such as acquiring the Hawaiian company, Bel Air Distributors, which distributes dry goods to many outlets, furthering Ramar Foods’ reach within major retailers. This was a major step for Ramar, as they work themselves up to reaching beyond being the go-to source for Filipino frozen food. They have immersed themselves within the local communities and businesses of Hawai’i, taking the time to learn 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 Manager and Sales Manager of Ramar Foods. “Through them, 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.”
