ABOUT THE VIRTUAL EVENT
Explore Hawai‘i’s very own vanilla farm and savor world-class vanilla products crafted with aloha.
Behind the Brand:
Hawaiian Vanilla Co. was established by the Reddekopp ‘ohana in 1998 while sitting around their dinner table discussing what to grow on its newly purchased property along the Hamakua Coast of Hawai‘i Island. The Reddekopps settled on vanilla and started their company as a way to raise great children and build a business together.
Over twenty years ago, Hawaiian Vanilla Co. became the first commercial grower of this crop in the country, and today it offers a variety of vanilla products from granola to spice rubs. After the family's patriarch, Jim Reddekopp passed away in early 2020, his ‘ohana–including wife, Tracy and four kids–proudly continues his beautiful legacy by running today's operations.
