Sustainable Sourcing Program

Our Sustainable Sourcing Program plays an important role in our company operations, suppliers’ businesses and the future of the planet and society. Throughout the program, we manage sustainability risks and impact together.

Our Program

We developed our Sustainable Sourcing Program as part of our Dole Promise, supported by Dole’s Supplier Code of Conduct. We also collaborate with our suppliers to have a positive impact on people, planet, and prosperity through our supply chain. We only engage in long-term partnerships with suppliers committed to sustainable development.
