Improving Agriculture

We take great pride in our research and development. Decades of research and hands-on traditions on Dole’s own farms and research centers have yielded many advancements and innovations to good farming practices—learnings that are shared with our worldwide network of independent and family farmers.

Organic Farming

Dole has been farming organically for over two decades, with positive impacts in the local communities, biodiversity, soil conservation, and greenhouse gas emission reduction. We continue to farm organically, and this practice has benefited many aspects of Dole’s agricultural practices in conventional farming also. By channeling the strength and resilience of nature, we can produce high-quality and nutritious crops, improve our environmental footprint, and give consumers the best food possible. The Dole Organic Program supports the company's mission through agricultural innovation and industry-leading research and development. This program also ensures that employees,  communities, and the environment receive the utmost respect.

Agricultural Practices

All producers within Dole’s network of company-owned and independent farmers across the globe are held to strict worldwide environmental standards. As per the Company’s Code of Conduct, all employees and key suppliers must sign and comply with this policy without compromise. Dole’s environmental programs are monitored in various ways both within and outside the company, including formal and informal audits, pre-harvest residue analyses, and residue monitoring of shipments before delivery to the customers. Dole also shares over a century of agricultural knowledge with its independent pineapple and banana growers, providing technical guidance and training in safety and environmental protection. All of which helps farmers grow the highest quality produce in the most sustainable way possible.
