In Dole we know that sustainability is every bit as important to foodservice professionals as it is in other sectors. The provenance of the produce we sell lies at the very heart of the value of our fresh fruits and vegetables. Sustainability is engrained into how we do our business. Our support of local growers is a case in point. Our network of local producers and our promotion of all things local illustrates our commitment to bringing to market the freshest, most sustainable produce as does the the care we take in delivering the cream of the global crop to foodservice outlets across the country.
