After over three decades of work in agriculture, Food Products Executive Frank E. Kiger of Alexander & Baldwin Inc.’s (A&B) Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company (HC&S) is retiring. Kiger was set to retire Monday, June 1. Kiger is credited with leading the development of two of A&B’s branded foods products—Kaua‘i Coffee and Maui Brand Sugar—and establishing these brands in Hawai‘i, on the Mainland and internationally. Kiger started with A&B on Kaua‘i as an electrician at McBryde Sugar Company, and rose through management during his 20 years there. He served as president for the Kaua‘i Coffee Company before moving to Maui to head field operations for HC&S. After heading factory operations for a bit, he then served as plantation general manager at HC&S from January 2008 to March of this year. He rounded out his career by concentrating on marketing and producing the brand’s two lines of natural sugar as vice president of HC&S and general manager of Maui Brand. Over the years, he also served twice as president of the Hawai‘i Coffee Company and on the International Relations Committee of the Specialty Coffee Association of America. Company representatives would like to thank Kiger for all his years of service and selfless contributions.
