Hawaiʻi is distanced from global production centers that produce imported goods for most of its food supply. Over time, imports have reduced the prevalence of traditional cuisine and contributed to cultural erosion. Our project goal was to conduct research for the PAF and Sea Grant Hawaiʻi to facilitate the reintroduction of a locally grown, traditional limu product to the Kaneohe community. Through interviews and surveys, we evaluated distribution methods, community outreach strategies, and consumer interests. Through our findings, we made recommendations that included an expansion plan, community outreach strategies, and limu product ideas to ease our sponsors’ entrance into the market with their limu product.
