Kaimana Jerky was born when we started experimenting with fish jerky back in the 80’s and found out it was delicious! We gave it to our family and friends and they loved it too, so we started a family business and began selling to local stores in Hawaii. You can now find our jerky at most local grocery store chains including KTA, Foodland and Costco Hawaii.
All of our jerky is made in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. We are located just a few miles from amazing fishing grounds. Some of the deepest, nutrient rich waters are just offshore where an abundance of sea life thrive. All of our jerky is made here, seasoned here, and packaged here in the same facility. We follow strict FDA and Department of Health guidelines to ensure a high quality product.
We respect our natural resources. We surf, paddle, fish, hunt, farm, and live sustainably! We have been making Kaimana Jerky for more than 25 years and are proud to provide something delicious to the local community that has it's roots in the ancient Hawaiian tradition of preserving fish. We support local business and believe that Hawaii has unique products that cannot be duplicated.
