Made-in-Hawaii BrandsAloha Business Owner,We know local shoppers want to support small businesses and find the best made-in-Hawaii products. That’s why DBEDT created Buy Hawaii, Give Aloha, a one-stop online resource that makes it easy for shoppers to find local brands, all in one place.Buy Hawaii, Give Aloha is a brand-new website that features local companies selling Hawaii-made products. If you’re a Hawaii business owner, you can join for free — and it’s free for your customers to use, too!Here’s how it works:

  1. If you’re a local business owner and at least 75% of your total product offerings listed in your website is made in Hawaii, complete your application online:https://invest.hawaii.gov/bhga-application/. Restaurants and farm delivery services can join, too!
  2. Your business name and website link will be listed on the Buy Hawaii, Give Aloha website at no cost to you. We’ll email you when your listing goes live.
  3. Shoppers looking for made-in-Hawaii products can visit Buy Hawaii, Give Aloha to find a directory of local businesses. They can browse businesses by category or search for a particular business name.
  4. Shoppers can click on a link to be taken directly to your online site to order from you.

What’s in it for me?

By listing your company on our directory, you’ll join dozens of other local businesses in creating a comprehensive listing of Hawaii companies. Customers can shop with confidence knowing they’re supporting local businesses and boosting our local economy.

You’ll also get free marketing and promotion to your online shop. DBEDT is conducting marketing and social media campaigns to promote the site and participating businesses to local consumers — all free to you. Later, we’ll expand promotion to mainland and international shoppers.
