Hawaii's Last Sugar Factory Closes Down - Maui Sugar, The End of an Era

As the year turned over, so did the focus for A & B and the sugar cane on Maui. All cane burning has ceased and HC&S' final sugar boat pulled out of Kahului Harbor this morning. The community awaits the next plan for a diversified agricultural model for the 27,000 acres of what we've known as green landscape. This has stirred mixed feelings as hundreds of our fathers and brothers are loosing jobs, and on the other hand the air quality is up for great improvement. A & B is the master of entitlements for Maui and will be for years to come. They control the land and they control the water via their subsidiary, East Maui Irrigation. For now, what is certain is A & B is moving forward with new projects in Wailea, a large housing project at the entry to Kihei, proposed large residential subdivision in Hali'imaile, and probably a lot more… Stay tuned and I'll keep you apprised as things progress over 2017.
