The Maui Ku‘ia Estate Chocolate Factory is currently under construction in the Lahaina Business Park. This will be the largest chocolate factory in the state of Hawai‘i.
The environmentally friendly factory will be 100% solar powered by 300 kW of solar panels, supported by 1050 kWh of Tesla batteries, and a 200 kW standby generator, making it the largest off-grid commercial facility in Maui. Our goal, between the chocolate factory and the farm, is to have a negative carbon footprint.

The Maui Ku‘ia Estate Retail Store is currently under construction in the Lahaina Business Park, where we are set to begin operations in 2019.
When completed this will be the largest chocolate factory in the state of Hawai‘i and will feature an exclusive retail store, complete with chocolate tasting bar, plus delicious made-to-order chocolate drinks and grab-and-go desserts. The 9,722-square-foot facility will also house our second floor open-air Ku‘ia Pavilion, where guests can take in 360-degree views of the ocean and neighbor islands, plus sweeping views of the West Maui Mountains—home to our Lahaina cacao farm.
In 2020, the chocolate factory will also offer the ultimate in Maui dining at our Ku‘ia Estate Chef’s Table. This twice-weekly culinary experience will seat 16 at our beautifully-crafted communal monkeypod wood, hand made dining table, and 7 at the monkeypod wood bar where guests can watch and interact with Executive Chef Riko Bartolome as he prepares and serves a 5-7 course tasting menu, paired perfectly with beverage selections chosen by the Ku‘ia team.
