The story behind the taro plant image

As our intent is to spread the story of Hawaiian taro through Ancestral Taro Powder, we wanted to be mindful of our branding and packaging.  We wanted the taro plant to have the stage on our packaging rather than photos of pancakes, soups or muffins like other baking products.

Mike Carroll, the famous Lanai-based artist, painted this image from one of our taro plants to show the source of Ancestral Taro Powder.

The native Hawaiians cultivated over 300 taro varieties for food, medicinal applications and spiritual uses.

Voyaging Foods utilizes a number of different Hawaiian varieties and believes that a healthy food system includes growing a variety of crops-not just one or two.

Some varieties we have used are Moi, Haokea, Maui Lehua, and Mana Keokeo.  Learn more about these varieties and more at some of the resources we use:
