About Dole Food Company, Inc.

With a history rooted in pineapple plantations, Dole Food has become one of the world's largest producers of fresh fruit and vegetables. Recognized by the Dole label on bananas, pineapples, lettuce, and other items, the company markets produce under its namesake brand to supermarkets, mass merchandisers, wholesalers, and food service operators. It also markets a line of packaged salads. North America is Dole's largest market, but it also serves select markets in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The company, founded in 1851, is owned by chairman David Murdock and European produce firm Total Produce.

Strategy

Digital transformation may not be the first phrase normally associated with a distributor of fresh produce, but Dole has been a leader in using technology to work on some of its industries most pressing concerns. Specifically, the company is using blockchain -- in collaboration with IBM -- to improve visibility into its supply chain and enhance food safety.
