Del Monte welcomes Honeyglow® Pineapple

Thanks to its permanent desire to satisfy the demands of consumers in the countries in which it operates, it has consolidated a range of products that has won the approval of the public over more than a century of history. An answer for which it is necessary to implement the highest levels of quality in the entire process that covers from the field to the plate of the final consumer.

Consumers today demand healthy and palatable products that are easy to consume and with a respectful and sustainable production. The new reference of Del Monte, Honeyglow® Pineapple, meets all these requirements while maintaining its competitiveness in cost to be a fruit transported by sea.
