Down to Earth goes beyond retail to advocate healthy living.  It partners with hospitals, schools, numerous groups and local organizations to promote awareness about the benefits of a plant-based diet. It provides vegetarian cooking classes, nutrition seminars in schools and local hospitals, and participates in health fairs.

Our focus and interest in promoting healthy and sustainable lifestyle led to the QI Group’s decision to invest in Down to Earth, a retail chain in Hawaii that specialises in organic, vegetarian and all-natural products. It is the only such chain in Hawaii and one of few of its kind in the entire United States.

Down to Earth was established in 1977 and was acquired by the QI Group in 2007. Over the years, Down to Earth has expanded to 6 stores with 5 on the island of Oahu and 1 on the island of Maui. These stores have also grown in size; they are now between 9,000 to 15,000 square feet each. Down to Earth is not only growing in size and location, but it has now expanded its offering to include a deli section in the newer stores. The deli section offers an extensive hot and cold plant-based menu and baked goods using fresh ingredients with no preservatives or artificial ingredients.
