During her busy day at work, we had the lucky opportunity to have a few minutes with long time Mana Foods’ Kitchen and Deli manager, Anne Gale. 

In August 2019, Anne will be celebrating her 22nd anniversary at Mana Foods!

Anne is renowned for the Thai cuisine that she serves at Mana Foods.  She has been awarded first place in contests for some of her authentic recipes.  Notable dishes served at Mana Foods are her Pad Thai, Curries, Thai Beef Salad and Calamari Salad. Lahaina and Kihei customers call daily to make sure we have these items to make their drive to Paia worthwhile.

Anne took over the Mana Foods kitchen as the manager 20 years ago… 

Although managing a group of people is difficult and it is quite challenging to keep up with the demand in this high paced kitchen, Anne explains that it makes her happy to make food that makes the community and visitors happy.

Why work at Mana Foods for over 20 years?

Anne says that It’s comfortable, close to her Haiku home, a good place to work, and she loves preparing food for people to eat and enjoy every day. 

Anne’s secret…

“Do your best and love what you do!”
