The Philippines is home to our Del Monte Philippines, Inc operations.

The main office is in Manila while the plantation and cannery are in southern Philippines, which is about 1.5 hour flight from Manila. The beverage bottling plant is in Laguna which is about 1.5 hour drive from Manila.

We operate the world's largest integrated pineapple operation. The Group produces its pineapple in its 26,000-hectare plantation in an area ideal for growing and outside the typhoon belt.

The processing facility, situated about an hour away from the plantation, has an annual capacity to process about 700,000 tonnes of pineapples. The competitiveness of this operation is complemented by an on-site can-making operation.

Adjacent to the plantation is the frozen fruit processing facility which started commercial operations in May 2017. 

Del Monte Pacific Limited's fully integrated operations ensure an efficient supply chain from production to market and the delivery of premium quality product.

The Group continues to implement cost-reduction and productivity-enhancement programmes, and invests in new technology and equipment to maintain its leadership position in the industry.

Our operations have consistently maintained a high standard of quality control and product assurance. We meet food standards set by our customers worldwide and by a number of international agencies.
