A local salsa was the big winner at the 2013 Maui Food Product to Market Contest held recently by the Maui Food Technology Center at the Maui Agricultural Festival.

Mama Isabel’s Organic Salsa was the 1st place winner and will receive the assistance from MFTC consultants to bring their product from idea to the store shelf.

In second place, Kupono Sodaworks will receive two hours of free consultation with a food scientist and two free nutritional labels.

In third place, Coconut Glen’s Ice Cream will receive one hour of free consultation with a food scientist and one free nutritional label.


In order to be considered, the product must have had commercial viability, and be a locally-made food product that utilized the greatest amount of locally-grown products.


The Maui Food Technology Center was formed to grow Maui’s food industry, and to connect students, food producers and farmers through the practice of food science.
