Made in and Inspired by Hawai‘i
Hawaiian Host Group, parent company to Hawaiian Host®, Mauna Loa®, and KOHO® brands, is the leading manufacturer of premium chocolate and macadamia nut treats & snacks.
What started as an attic experiment in his parent’s home on Maui grew into the beloved Hawai‘i-based confectionery brand that it is today. Mamoru Takitani’s dream of creating a world-famous confection came true thanks to his pioneering spirit and enviable tenacity.
Handcrafted milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Hawaiian honey, Kona coffee … these are just some of the premium ingredients Hawaiian Host® combines with its dry-roasted macadamias when creating its signature indulgences.
More than 40 years ago, in the shadow of Mauna Loa volcano herself, those at Mauna Loa® learned to grow and roast macadamias to produce a nutrient-dense nut with a luscious buttery flavor and satisfying crunch.
Today, we’re taking the mighty macadamia further than it’s ever gone before with a variety of bold new products that harness the vibrant flavors and exquisite tastes of Hawai‘i.
Combining luxury craftsmanship, innovation and sense of place, KOHO® is the new premier line of Island-inspired artisanal chocolates. Hailing from Hawai‘i, the artfully crafted line features visually enticing bonbons infused with exotic flavors, and draws inspiration from the islands themselves, from ocean to macadamia orchard.
KOHO® is all about the experience and the moment where senses meet to savor bonbon decadence. From its inception, the concept of KOHO® was to put itself on the map to be the artisanal chocolate brand of the Islands and to reshape the perception of luxury in Hawai‘i.
