Island Naturals was started by Russell Ruderman over a decade ago. A Hawaii resident for over 25 years, Russell has been steeped in the health food and organic farm industry since 1975. His abiding interest in health food products, customer service and organic food issues led him to start Island Naturals in Hilo back in 1998. His commitment to integrity in labeling, local food sourcing, attractive store design, and respectful and fair treatment of employees has resulted in creating the best organic food markets in Hawaii. Talk to our customers or employees and they will tell you that we're serious about our commitment to organic and quality natural foods. Our staff is knowledgeable and excited about natural foods on a personal level; this results in a progressive work environment. Our whole team is motivated to carry the best organic foods and products for our conscientious shoppers.
We welcome everyone, whether you're a long time natural foods shopper, a customer with a special dietary need, or if you've never stepped foot in a health food store in your life! From vegan to first time health food shoppers, all of our customers have one thing in common, they want to make healthy choices for their families and eat delicious food! We've been voted the best health food store on the island for nine years in a row. More than just a natural foods grocery store, Island Naturals is a cheerful and inviting environment for customers and employees alike. We like to have fun while we work and it seems to be contagious! Customers will often find themselves amidst a lively, energetic atmosphere; possibly meeting up with friends and neighbors to chat while they shop. We frequently hear comments about the variety of customers in our stores, including folks you'd never expect to see in a natural food store. This is our definition of success, as we are committed to bringing healthy food into the lives of as many people as possible.
