It is an official mark of a premium Hawai’i-grown product, and Ho Farms produce is proud to have earned this designation from the Hawai’i Department of Agriculture (HDOA). The green “Hawai’i Seal of Quality” sticker that you see on our produce is provided by the HDOA to select producers who meet their standards of premium quality and Hawaii-produced.
The HDOA established the program in 2006 to protect the integrity and value of marketing Hawai’i branded farm and value-added products. When you purchase a product with a Hawai’i Seal of Quality sticker, you are purchasing premium products guaranteed to be Hawai’i-grown or Hawai’i-made, a guarantee that is enforced by the State of Hawai’i.
