News Release #47 – We are now accepting 2016 applications for 111-HAWAII!

Now’s your chance to join and improve your product’s value!
Local businesses will stand together as '1' and support your Made in Hawaii product!

There are many small-medium businesses in Hawaii with quality Made in Hawaii products. However, due to lack of acknowledgement or branding ability, these products unfortunately stay undiscovered. 111-HAWAII PROJECT is about bringing various local businesses together and supporting these Made in Hawaii products to revitalize Hawaii.

So far, we have had 4 products (Kona Coffee, Mamaki Tea, Coconuts Crackers and Aloha Shirts) join the project for the 1st phase, and they were commercialized with the unified 111-HAWAII branding. Each companies have shown increased acknowledgement through exposure by many medias, which lead to increased sales of their own products.

At last, 111-HAWAII PROJECT will start accepting applications from local makers & manufacturers (2nd phase / limit capacity of 4 companies) who will receive full support from the project as with the 1st phase. There are numerous merits in joining the project. If you want to “improve acknowledgment and branding ability, and increase sales”, please feel free to contact us.
