Pineapple Juice Lovers Unite! Rally with Dole Packaged Foods to Establish Pineapple Juice Day as a National Holiday
On National Orange Juice Day, Dole launches a petition to give pineapple juice its time to shine while giving back to Feeding America®
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ –Today–on National Orange Juice Day–Dole Packaged Foods, LLC launched a petition to establish August 17, 2023 as National Pineapple Juice Day. Pineapple juice is naturally superior due to its unique taste and boost of Vitamin C, yet, it often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves–it doesn’t even have its own holiday. Ninety years after Dole first stamped its name on cans of pineapple juice, now is the time for pineapple juice to shine even more.
Dole is calling for all pineapple juice lovers to sign the petition and once 5,000 signatures are collected, Dole will take the charge to make National Pineapple Juice Day official. To sweeten the deal, from now until May 31, 2023, Dole will make a donation for each signature to Feeding America® (up to $5,000) to support programs to end hunger as part of the Dole Promise.
“As the leader in pineapple juice, we strongly believe this tropical beverage deserves its own day to be celebrated,” said Orzse Hodi, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Americas, Dole Packaged Foods, LLC. “We ask pineapple juice drinkers to join us and help make Pineapple Juice Day real.”
