Sysco Corp., Houston, Texas, announced that HFM FoodService, which it acquired in 2017, will change its name to Sysco Hawaiʻi.

This announcement coincides with the facility opening a 3,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art test kitchen at its Oahu, Hawaii, facility.

“With the new Sysco Hawaiʻi, we now offer the ‘best of local from a global company,’” says Jason Wong, president, Sysco Hawaiʻi. “We will leverage the strengths of the entire Sysco Hawaiʻi team with Sysco’s deep breadth of products, services and solutions, to bring even more value to our customers. More importantly, the Sysco Hawaiʻi team will remain very much rooted in our local community.”

Sysco Hawaiʻi’s new test kitchen allows associates to provide customers an in-depth consultation that covers everything from menu planning to back-of-the-house logistics, and allows local chefs to help test new menu items, sample new products and more.
