Canned food is the original convenience product. It enables seasonal food to be eaten all year round and makes exotic and ethnic food readily available. We believe we are a leading marketer for branded canned fruit and pineapple in the European Union (EU) and other European markets and the Middle East. To maintain the high standards of the Del Monte® brand, the fruit used for canning must be of the best quality. Del Monte Fresh Produce’s canning operations ensure the quality of the product by heating the product in the can which retains all the nutritional value. In addition, this process seals and preserves the contents and helps to prevent nutrient loss over time.
Del Monte Fresh Produce is most known for its Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapple and is a leading marketer of canned and processed pineapples. Pineapple expertise is at the very heart of our business.
Canned pineapple is highly convenient, the perfect companion to ham, sweet and juicy on a pizza, or as an exotic treat with ice cream. And don’t forget it’s healthy, too.
Del Monte Fresh Produce brings innovation into the canned category by launching a truly tempting and versatile fruit-based dessert range of pineapple in six amazing flavors including vanilla, mango, lemon, bitter almond, ginger, and coconut. Consumers can indulge in this low fat, premium quality pineapple dessert from Kenya all year round.
Canned Fruit Cocktail
Fruit cocktail consists of a mixture of peaches, pears, pineapples, grapes and cherries. Packing of Fruit Cocktail takes place when harvest times of pears, peaches and grapes overlap. The production in Greece starts in September and extends throughout October.
Canned Peaches and Apricots
Canned Peaches are also incredibly versatile and are delicious served in savory dishes or on your breakfast cereal to add an extra healthy touch to the start of the day. Sweet and succulent, Del Monte Canned Apricots are delicious, nutritious and above all, convenient for today’s healthy driven lifestyles.
Del Monte Canned Pears are a superb quality product. Always perfectly ripe, they are a convenient alternative to fresh and are perfect with cream or ice cream. Unlike other fruit picked for canning, pears are harvested early and are ripened under controlled conditions. This reduces bruising during pre-cannery handling and helps to ensure a smooth texture. The pears are washed, peeled and cored and graded by size as required.
This delicious range is guaranteed to satisfy your cravings for new and exciting taste experiences. Conveniently prepared, Del Monte Exotics are easy and versatile. This fantastic fruity range is ideal for people with busy lifestyles, as it eliminates the time and trouble of buying and preparing exotic fruit. You can enjoy these delicious fruit variations on their own, for breakfast, or as a tasty dessert.
