Dole Philippines opens new $20m pineapple production facility

Giant fruit producer Dole Philippines, has opened a new production facility worth US$20 million that could generate 1,500 additional jobs, officials said Wednesday.

Randolph Fleming, Dole Philippines vice president and managing director, said the new plant is the firm’s largest single investment that could process 250,000 tons of processed fruit annually.

The facility officially opened in Surallah town, South Cotabato over the weekend to service at least 3,000 hectares of pineapple plantation.
Fleming said the new plant can double its capacity and will put “Surallah on the map as a major producer of pineapples.”
