Food manufacturing generates over $900 million in revenue annually and provides jobs for 6100 people in our state.  As President of the Hawaii Food Manufacturers Association, Byron Goo, CEO of The Tea Chest, had the opportunity to work on several initiatives to help companies for years to come.  One such initiative was the creation of a strategic investment fund that will help manufacturers upgrade factories, train workers and improve energy efficiency.
