• Dolefil Strikes Gold


    The New Year calls for a celebration as Dole Philippines, Inc. (Dolefil) turns 50 this 2013. Series of activities and programs for both its employees and its community are lined up throughout the year to celebrate this historic milestone.

    As a kick-off, Dolefil had simultaneous fireworks display last January 1, 2013 at its operations in Calumpang, General Santos, Surallah, and Polomolok, South Cotabato. On January 13-19, a surgical mission will be held at Howard Hubbard Memorial Hospital in partnership with the Philippine Medical Society of Florida, Mahintana Foundation, Inc., and Mt. Matutum Healthcare Foundation Inc.


    There are not many companies that survive 50 years. Dolefil's VP and Managing Director, Mr. Simon Denye says Dolefil's turning 50 is an "impressive achievement". "We are lucky that our costumers still love pineapple. With Itochu backing us with their financial support and growth opportunities in countries such as China, we can look forward to another 50 years", Denye added.

Now, Dolefil, with an annual production equivalent to about 8 billion servings, provides healthy and high-quality food products to numerous international markets worldwide.
