Del Monte Fresh Produce Company is one of the world’s leading vertically integrated producers, marketers and distributors of high-quality fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, as well as a leading producer and distributor of prepared fruit and vegetables, juices, beverages, snacks, and desserts in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Del Monte Fresh Produce Company markets its fresh products worldwide under the Del Monte brand, a symbol of product quality, freshness and reliability since 1892.
Del Monte Fresh Produce Company has proven success with leading retailers on category management projects, based on comprehensive market, consumer and customer specific data and insight. Central to this is the commitment to the long-term, profitable growth of the categories in which Del Monte operates.
Since Del Monte’s successful establishment of its regional headquarters for the Middle East and North Africa in the U.A.E. on 2007, it has pro-actively spread throughout the region starting with the Saudi Arabia market on 2010 in Riyadh and Jeddah, handling a large quantity of fresh produce. More recently, three new units were opened in Iraq, Turkey and Ukraine capitalizing on the massive fresh produce business opportunities available across the region.
Del Monte has also recently started its operation of a 20-hectare farm in Ras al Khaimah, UAE on mid-2013 – growing iceberg and romaine lettuce melons, broccoli, watermelon and strawberry.
On its 8th participation, Del Monte highlights the continuous business expansion with the launch of new product categories and line extensions; such as Grab ‘N Go snacks, new foul medammes recipes, chopped tomatoes, among others.
Moreover, the Del Monte Fresh Market is showcased at Gulfood 2014. This new concept is selling convenient yet healthy eating solutions while on the go. A wide range of high quality, fresh snack choices are offered: from ultra-fresh juices to fresh cut fruit salads, from freshly made gourmet sandwiches to fruit-based iced desserts. Del Monte Fresh Market outlets are available at selected leading malls and airports across the KSA and UAE.
