Sustainable Dish Podcast

Meet Jake Muise, co-founder of Maui Nui Venison. The Maui Nui mission is “to help balance Axis deer populations for the good of our environment, communities, and food system. “

In short, Jake and his team are using this invasive species to create a nutrient-dense food source for the people of Hawaii.

All of Maui Nui’s products are delicious and packed with high-quality nutrients. Plus, the USDA oversees the entire process and inspects each animal before approving it as safe for human consumption.
