The DE.HI story begins when three friends set out to revolutionize the snack food industry.  For months they toiled with different cuts of meat, flavors, equipment, and techniques until they finally found the right combination of crunch and seasoning that they could all agree on.  The initial three flavors of beef jerky are just the beginning of our vision.  We would like to expand proteins to more environmentally friendly proteins as well as creating low sugar, low sodium flavors that will allow the 30% of Hawaii that has, or is at risk for diabetes to enjoy our snacks completely guilt free.

We are a moral capitalist organization that believes in treating people right, not cutting corners, and maintaining proper work-family life balance.  As addictive as our jerky is, you will not be able to buy it on Thanksgiving because our employees are with their families or friends, as they will be on other major holidays.  Our goal is to make our product as healthy as we can and are constantly looking to new alternatives for flavoring.  We envision having a manufacturing facility that is fully run on solar energy, and strive to limit our waste.  DE.HI wants to limit our carbon footprint so that we are able to provide our products to the future keiki.

Our very own unofficial Mayor of Honolulu may come up and start a conversation with you one day, and we apologize in advance.  This creature of the night cracks the whip making sure that every piece of jerky has the right texture and flavor. The brainchild of DE.HI, Jay has big dreams for the company and firmly believes that success comes from a tasty product, happy employees, and being good stewards of the aina.

CINDY

"La Madrina" (The Godmother)

With over 10 years of experience running a commercial kitchen, this wahine of Waipio brings much needed order to the operation.  When she's not cracking the whip making sure the boys aren't goofing off, she's jamming out to J-Pop.  We are definitely thankful to have her driven work ethic and overall awesomeness a part of the DE.HI team.

Chief Operating Officer

Once hailed as the "Tennis Prodigy from Pearl City", Eli brings his dedication to perfection to the production floor.  Having worked in industries that require attention to detail, his background is a vital component to ensuring that every piece of DE.HI jerky leaves you yearning for more.  This born and bred local boy can do it all, from turning a tree into a elegant chair, to putting the perfect amount of pepper on a slice of meat.

 

 

GINA

"Future Jerky Saleswoman of the Year"

Blessed with the gift of gab, this local wahine can carry a conversation with anyone.  Awkward silence? Never an issue.  Unfortunately for the time being, she is only able to use her God-given talents once in a while as we keep her locked away in the production room.  However when she does run the retail operation, you will know by the Aloha in the air.

Justin is passionate that the business strives to be as environmentally conscious as possible, while maintaining reasonable pricing for our customers.  When not chained to his desk or in the factory, you can find him in the water wherever there are waves.
