HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The annual business-to-business show provides Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) and Army & Air Force Exchange service (AAFES) officials the opportunity to taste-test local products and to interact one-on-one with Hawaii business owners before recommending products for commissary and exchange shelves. DeCA and Exchange store directors and buyers will be in attendance.
As a result of the 2015 show, 185 new items were selected for inclusion in the commissary system on Oahu. This included products from ten companies that had previously never done business with DeCA. The combined military exchanges also added 15 new companies and 300 new line items to their selection. Over the course of the show's history, 2,452 local products have been added to Commissary shelves.
