When you think of the weekend, breakfast and eggs are often the first thing that comes to mind. HI Now hosts Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson are in the kitchen sharing some recipes that show just how versatile the ingredient is. The hosts are also using local eggs from Hawaiian Egg Company, and it’s the quality and freshness of these eggs that will set your dish apart from the rest!
The family egg farm was originally built in 1947 in Waianae. This agriculturally rich and older part of the island provides Hawaii with some of the island’s finest agricultural products. Still to this day, the farm continues to hand feed and hand pick every egg with aloha. If you’re looking for these eggs in store, you’ll find them under the brand names Hawaiian Maid Eggs and Ka Lei Eggs.
The eggs from Hawaiian Egg Company are the only brand certified by the USDA in Hawaii, as an inspector is actually in their facility while processing. It’s also the only certified organic egg processing facility in Hawaii.
Hawaiian Egg Company and its employees have a strong belief in giving back. The company regularly donates to Aloha Harvest, the Hawaii Foodbank and other non-profits. It also recently sent eggs to Molokai Farmers Homestead of Alliance in Molokai for two food distributions.
Hawaiian Egg Company eggs are available statewide in stores like Don Quijote, Marukai, Foodland, Times, Safeway, and Whole Foods. You can also find them at various farmers markets, as well as its own storefront located in Kalihi at 419 Waiakamilo Rd, Honolulu, HI 96817. You can also give the store a call at (808) 841-7695.
