Truth About the Hawaiian Pineapple Company

The Hawaiian Pineapple Company always upholds good relations amongst its employees, supervisors, and heads, and we believe we always have the full backing of our employees, and if that weren’t the case, gaining the progress we have today would be incomprehensible.

The farming of pineapples in Wahiawa is on about 10,000 acres of land, and we believe that it is producing, with the aid of the steadfast workers and machinery of the newest model, the finest pineapple of the world.

Canned at the pineapple plant in Honolulu, in a single day from 1919 on, more than 650,000 cans of pineapple. This is due to the modern processes and new machinery, along with the skilled and careful workers.
