Empowering Workers and Farmers

Our farms are located in predominantly rural areas, where we have the room to help both plants and people grow happily. We are fully committed to the amazing communities that help us produce our fresh fruits and vegetables, and to treating each and every employee, regardless of role or region, with openness, candor, and respect.

As an organization, Dole has become the employer of choice in communities where our farms are located. We work together with our farmers and workers to provide unique opportunities that enrich their lives and give them the confidence to do great things.
