Our Story


The HFA story began with humble beginnings on a card table in the basement of Founder Chad Buck’s home.  Over the past 20 years, we have been blessed with an incredible team of professionals dedicated to their work, customers and Hawaiʻi’s consumers.  Together, we have grown from our first 17 items in Safeway’s Neighbor Island stores to the largest distributor of perishable food to grocers, clubs and C-stores in Hawaiʻi.

We are grateful to our team members, customers and vendors for their commitment over the years, as we have all come together to feed Hawaiʻi.
