Our Company History
It started with a great cup of coffee, as many success stories do.
In 1886, the prestigious Hotel Del Monte in Monterey, California introduced the world to Del Monte Coffee, a premium coffee specifically blended for hotel guests. The coffee must have been potent, because the company quickly grew to a globally recognized brand with a reputation for high standards and fair practices.
Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc. delivers whole fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh-cut produce and packaged fresh produce-based products to people across North America under the Del Monte® brand.
- Excellence: We provide products of the highest quality, and conduct business in an ethical, socially responsible and transparent way.
- Passion: We are committed to doing our best every time, in every way.
- Creativity: We never stop thinking about ways to improve literally everything we do.
- Care: We consistently and relentlessly respect and focus on our people; employees, customers, the environment we all share and the communities in which we all live.
- Trust: We empower our people with the freedom to succeed; as a result, they are accountable team players who foster collaboration and focus on efficiency.
Inspiring Healthful Lifestyles
Life today can be, shall we say, hectic. It seems like it keeps getting harder to make positive choices that support your wellbeing. Too bad you can’t just download fruit salad (maybe one day—we might even have someone working on that).
Anyway, our goal is to bring a little more fresh into your life through wholesome and convenient products. And that’s why we are constantly looking for ways to make it easier for you to add fresh produce to your diet. We’re full-service fresh, with whole fresh produce, ready-to-eat fresh-cut options when you’re on the go, and packaged fresh produce-based options that make eating healthfully nice and simple.
So whenever you see fresh fruits and veggies sporting the tri-color Del Monte® shield, you have the peace of mind that comes with making a wholesome choice. And fortunately, we always find that one of those always leads to another.
The brand is born
In 1886, Del Monte Coffee premiered as a premium blend of coffee packaged exclusively for the prestigious Hotel Del Monte in Monterey, California.
In 1968, Del Monte Corporation acquires the West Indies Tropical Fruit Company of Coral Gables, Florida.
Del Monte times two
In 1989, Del Monte Corporation divides into two separate entities: Del Monte Tropical Fruit and Del Monte Foods.
The gold standard
In 1996, the Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet Pineapple was introduced, becoming an instant hit. People insist on it because it’s twice as sweet and has such beautiful, golden fruit.
Call us fresh
In 1993, Del Monte Tropical Fruit changes its name to Fresh Del Monte Produce N.V.
Meet the magnificent MAG® Melon
In 2011, MAG® Melons were developed to meet demand for a melon delivering consistent quality, flavor and aroma. The MAG® Melon has a more pleasant and concentrated aroma compared to traditional cantaloupes, and has a sweet flavor and juicy texture.
Introducing the Honeyglow® Pineapple
In 2018, we developed the Honeyglow® pineapple, allowing it to mature naturally on the plant for a few precious extra days. We then hand select each one to ensure a high shell color, delighting people who associate ripe, premium pineapples with a bright, golden shell.
Launched in 2019, the Better Break™ convenience line gives you flavorful snacking in only three minutes! What’s more, Better Break™ is 130 calories or less per serving, and based on fresh, delicious vegetables
