Like many business success stories in Hawai’i, Hawaiian Host was developed from humble beginnings. Mamoru Takitani founded the company upon which a rich legacy of quality, innovation, hard work and integrity was built.
Hawaiian Host is the original chocolate covered macadamia candy and is considered the standard by which all others are judged. With more than 15 million boxes of Hawaiian Host products packed each year, Hawaiian Host is the largest manufacturer of chocolate covered macadamias in the world. From premium gifts to indulgent snack-time treats, our confections are crafted with select macadamias, collected by hand and extra creamy chocolate, an original secret recipe handed down through generations.
Over the years, our products have become synonymous to Hawai’i, products that perpetuate the Aloha spirit. Today, Hawaiian Host markets more than 250 unique macadamia chocolates and other candies in more than 23 countries with manufacturing facilities in Honolulu and Los Angeles and additional distribution facilities in Tokyo.
