New owners Jeff Sacchini and Howard Warner are foodies, friends and love Kauai so the opportunity to purchase Living Foods Gourmet Market and Café seemed like the perfect match. They have a dynamic working relationship and their business partnership blends many strong attributes. Howard’s impressive background in law and business provides executive leadership and expertise that complement Jeff’s passion for everything food related. Jeff has nearly 30 years in the food business in many different capacities.
Their philosophy at Living Foods is quite simple, but unwavering. They source only the finest products. They buy direct from Kauai farmers, fisherman, artisans and small businesses first. They search for premium organic products that compliment their current product selections. They are committed to quality, uniqueness, GMO free and gluten free. They are concerned and socially conscious about how all of their products are raised, grown and manufactured, and they are dedicated to providing an exceptional work environment for their passionate ‘ohana of employees.
Jeff and Howard’s immediate goals are to be a thriving foodie hub on Kauai, a responsible employer, and a committed partner in the community. But looking forward, they are excited to showcase their expansive and exclusive product lines and educate people on the Living Foods “story”. They are already planning wine tastings, cooking classes and chef demonstrations. With Jeff and Howard in charge, opportunities are limitless!
