WELCOME TO LE MANAI ONLINE
Welcome to our Pacific Island
community on the Internet. This is our online efforts in reaching out to
our Pacific Islanders away from the Islands and providing Polynesian
food products that may not be available at your local Supermarket.
Wherever you may be, whether serving in the armed forces, attending
school, furthering your career, or involved in church functions, you can
always come home to Le Manai in providing the finest “Taste of the South
In November of 1997, Le Manai,
began supplying the Pacific Island communities from the basement of our
Cedar property, located at 655 Cedar Ave. in Long Beach California .
Today, this location is known nationwide by the majority of the Pacific
Islanders by the infamous word of mouth marketing structure.
Because of the fast growing number
in sales, Le Manai immediately look into importing Pacific Island
products directly from manufacturers, farmers, growers. This enables us
to (1) provide the customers with the lowest price and (2)
maintain quality island food products consistently.
Today, Le Manai import products from Samoa,
Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Chile and Jamaica. If you have a product
for Pacific Islanders and would like to import email us at
LE MANAI BRAND
Le Manai has its own private
label to ensure quality selection for its customers. Our 20 lb. (Blue
Label) Cured Beef bucket is popular with the community in providing high
quantity as well as supreme quality especially during a "Fa'alavelave."
such as funerals, cooking, weddings, etc.
Our “Le Manai Brand” label
includes Corned Beef Brisket, Pacific Islanders favorite, the
famous Pilikaki (Jack Mackerel) in Natural Oil and Tomatoe Sauce,
Samoan Sausage Bangers (Beef and Pork), Curry Powder (made
in Fiji) and many more to come.
KING & QUEEN PHILOSOPHY
Without customers, Le Manai
would not exist today. Our company is built upon the notion that Pacific
Islanders are Kings and Queens, therefore they must be treated
accordingly. Le Manai treats its customers with the utmost
respect. At our Cedar warehouse, customers can expect to buy products 24
hours a day (like in the Islands), especially when churches prepare
overnight cooking for their next day plate sale, luau, or fundraising.
One event occurred when a local church rushed at 2 am Saturday morning
to buy 5 cases of turkey tail when one of our competitors failed to
deliver the goods as promised. Instead of telling the customer, “Sorry,
we’re closed,” we say, “Sure we can.” With staff members residing in our
Cedar campus, the King & Queen Philosophy has so far made Le Manai
the #1 Pacific Island market in the community.
Pacific Islanders puts high emphasis
when it comes to culture, commonly called “fa’alavelave.” Especially
funerals, relatives will travel from Samoa, New Zealand, Hawaii and
other parts of the South Pacific, including relatives from other states.
Hotels, Rental Cars, Uhaul and Airline companies love it. As an importer,
Le Manai services most of the “Fa’alavelave” funerals, weddings,
fundraisings, church dedications, culture celebrations, etc. Le Manai
(the only company that delivers) large and small orders to as far as San
Diego and San Bernardino Counties. We work closely with community
coordinator (Usually the High Chief) in assuring all necessary products
are provided at reasonable price. We may deliver early morning or late
evenings, but we wait patiently and act upon your confirmed orders. Most
of the time, the families make their final plans Sunday night before the
final services for their loved ones. We stand ready for final delivery
of your goods Monday morning to the Church hall for the afternoon
Today, Le Manai and Island Traders
are blessed by the tremendous support of the Pacific Island community in
Orange County. The demand of the Pacific Islanders have been so great,
the traditional hours of Monday to Saturday quickly upgraded to also
include a half day of Sunday.
Le Manai now seeks Pacific Island partners
in San Diego County & San Bernardino County.
