DCL, Inc. was established in 1972 and first incorporated in the state of Hawaii in 1973. We started out in Kakaako as exporters of fresh fish (such as tuna or ahi), fishcake (or kamaboko), Hawaii food products, and Filipino vegetables to California and Canada. All items were strictly for wholesale use; sold in bulk and loaded into airline containers for direct shipment to our customers. We currently reside in Kalihi and still export many Hawaii food items such as Hawaiian food and local snacks, but mainly to the San Francisco area. These items include lau lau, kalua pig, poi, ti leaves, taro chips, Portuguese sausage, mochi, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, and saimin. You can find many of these local Hawaii items in “Mom & Pop” and specialty stores throughout the bay area.
Currently here in Honolulu, DCL, Inc. specializes in distributing a full-line of fresh produce from the mainland as well as produce grown locally within our state. Some of our locally grown specialty items include pineapple, papaya, lettuce, zucchini, Japanese cucumber, rambutan, longan, starfruit, lychee, and oranges. Our customers include Times Supermarket, Costco, Down to Earth Grocery, Sack n Save, and Norwegian Cruise Lines, just to name a few.
Another division of DCL, Honolulu Ship Supply Co. supplies cruise ships, tankers, and tug boats with supplies ranging from produce, seafood, beverages, hardware, office supplies, and any other item a ship might possibly need. Our professional, experienced purchasing staff supplies most of our ships with whatever it is they may need from A to Z.
As a company, our professional experienced staff can supply our customers with whatever it is they desire at a moment’s notice. We strive to provide our customers with value added through convenience with the best customer service, the best quality available, and the most competitive price.
