Our promise for a brighter world
We are taking action to ensure our Promise is fulfilled and driving tangible solutions to create change. Malnutrition Labels, an experiential initiative, was designed to spark conversation and shed light on the gaps in nutrition access, affordability, and acceptability. The Growing Distance, a short film, brings to life these critical gaps we see as barriers to good nutrition for all.
We are promising people, planet and prosperity at the heart of everything we do to make the sun shine brighter for all
As part of our Dole Promise towards zero fruit loss and reduced landfills necessary for carbon neutrality, Dole Sunshine Company has partnered with social enterprise Musa Fabric to turn banana waste into fibres of purpose through a partnership creating fashion products, woven by marginalized communities. We believe that by putting the prosperity of people and the planet at the heart of everything we do, the sun shines brighter for us all.
Malnutrition Labels Food Waste
After a large-than-life activation earlier in the year, projecting Malnutrition Labels on the sides of New York, Los Angeles and Baltimore buildings, Dole and City Harvest are getting the word out in a small but most relevant space, New York’s trash bins. By presenting New Yorkers with this information, we hope to #ChangeTheFacts and reduce food waste in New York City and across the country.
The Growing Distance
We believe good nutrition is a human right. That’s why we’re striving to put healthy food within reach for all. Join us to build a brighter future and learn how we’re sparking conversation and action to help close the gaps in nutrition access, affordability, and acceptability.
Malnutrition isn’t specific to one city, one region, or one country. It doesn’t discriminate based on ethnicity or age or gender identity or socioeconomic status. We believe good nutrition is a human right. Join us to change the facts.
