the 100% Kona Coffee seal program aimed at
pure Kona coffee and raising consumer
awareness. According to the mayor this seal program
guards the integrity of Kona's gourmet
industry and bolsters

Kona coffee packaging,
coffee must be exclusively grown in north
Big Island and
as per Chapter 147, Hawaii Revised Statues..
The applicant then submits a copy of this

has been contracted to administer and manage
the County's logo seal program. These
adhesive logo seals are sold for 3¢ per
