Changes are in the works for Hawaii-based cattle company and livestock processor Kunoa Cattle Company after signing its largest partnership with a Hawaii grocery chain. The company, which manages a herd of 2,000 cattle on Kauai, has partnered with all Times Supermarkets locations on Oahu and Maui to sell its ground beef. Kunoa also announced that it will be investing more than $650,000 in upgrades to its 7-acre Kapolei facility, which the company acquired in November.

Every year, Hawaii imports more than 200,000 finished cattle from the mainland.
But starting next spring, shoppers will start to see more local beef in their market.
It's all thanks to a new venture from Kauai-based Kunoa Cattle Company, which sees expanding Hawaii's local beef supply as a key step toward sustainability. Earlier this month, the company finalized a deal with the state to lease Oahu's only slaughterhouse.
