Owner Sheldon Cho founded Kaimana Jerky out of a love for the ocean and creating unique products through local resources. The people of Hawai‘i have sustained their families and respected the Pacific Ocean's powerful life force for centuries. Though delicious and high-quality protein snacks, Kaimana Jerky fuels people's minds and bodies as well. In the Hawaiian language, kaimana translates to “the power of the sea.” Today, the brand based on the Orchid Isle embraces the ancient art of drying fish to give its jerky a great taste for the modern lifestyle.
The Hawai‘i Island company offers its Tuna Jerky in a variety of flavors, delicately preparing, drying (to perfection!) and seasoning its products with all-natural ingredients. Its jerky is made with quality ingredients and never contains MSG, nitrates or preservatives that don’t naturally occur. It also uses a preservative-freeshoyu (soy sauce) made in the USA.
All of Kaimana Jerky’s products are made in Kailua-Kona, Hawai‘i, just a few miles from amazing fishing grounds. The company respects our islands’ natural resourcesits team members surf, paddle, fish, hunt, farm and live sustainably! They have been making fish jerky for over 25 years and are proud to provide something delicious to the local community with roots in the ancient Hawaiian tradition of preserving fish. You can find Kaimana Jerky at most local grocery store chains including KTA, Foodland and Costco.
