Our Purpose

Since our humble, yet mission-driven beginnings almost 170 years ago, Dole has believed that good, healthy food should be more like sunshine – available for all.

This is why our rallying cry of “Sunshine for All” is important not only for us, but for all people across the world. We want to champion an equitable world where everyone – irrespective of age, income, location, race or gender – has access to healthy nutrition, but where this access does not come at the cost of the planet.

Meet our Partners

As we deliver on these promises we realise that we may not have all the answers today. And we humbly believe that achieving a sustainable future for all, cannot be done alone. Our Dole promise is therefore underpinned by key partnerships like Solidaridad and Rocana to innovate, collaborate and approach key stakeholders across the value chain.
