Digitally Delivered with Aloha: Y. Hata Leverages PartnerLinQ for Supply Chain Transformation
Y. Hata & Co., Limited has been an essential part of Hawaii’s economy for more than 108 years. Yoichi Hata and his wife started the company as a “mom-and-pop” operation in 1913, selling products (wholesale) out of a family garage on the Big Island of Hawaii. But the visionary founder soon transformed the modest backyard operation into a prolific statewide network.
Incorporated in 1922, Y. Hata is now the largest independent, family-owned foodservice distributor servicing the State of Hawaii. With its fleet of temperature-controlled trucks, the company is setting the standard for foodservice companies and distributors in the Pacific region.
