The Group has launched a slew of new products using breakthrough technologies in ingredients, processes and packaging. Finding solutions to address emerging health issues has led to a host of innovative products that offer benefits, from promoting weight management and body fat reduction, to cholesterol lowering and bone health advantage. In the United States, we have a number of No-Sugar-Added packaged fruit products, and No-Salt-Added, and Reduced-Sodium packaged vegetable products.

 
 

Frozen Fruit with Nice technology - In 2014, DMPL entered into a JV with leading Spanish fruit processor Nice Fruit SL and investment firm Ferville Ltd to build a food processing facility in the Philippines, and process, market and sell frozen fruits globally.

It utilises Nice Fruit’s patented technology called Nice Frozen Dry (NFD) that allows fruits picked at optimal ripeness to be frozen for up to three years while preserving nutrients, structure, original properties and organoleptic characteristics.

This technology has gained international acceptance, having won “Best Product of the Year” in the foodservice category at the prestigious Salon International de I’alimentation or SIAL in 2014, and FABI prize (Food and Beverage) for its revolutionary product from more than 2,000 companies at the National Restaurant Association or NRA Show in Chicago in 2015. This technology foresees radical changes in food consumption habits, and advantages for export and improved stock management.

Products for sale in the Philippines are sold in select foodservice channels primarily specialty bakeshops.

Del Monte Fit ‘n Right Juice Drink is the first drink in the Philippines to contain Green Coffee Extract and L-Carnitine proven to result in body fat reduction with diet and exercise.

L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in our human bodies, mostly in the body's muscle tissue. It plays an important role in the metabolism of fat. It attaches to fatty acids and transports these to the mitochondria in all cells. The mitochondria then converts fat into energy. Instead of depleting glycogen, an important energy source, L-Carnitine allows the body to use fat instead for energy production, thus reducing body fat.

L-carnitine is available in red meat and dairy products in high concentrations. It is also found in nuts and seeds, fruits and vegetables, legumes and cereals. L-Carnitine is also widely available as supplements. Del Monte Fit ‘n Right Juice Drinks are available in the Philippines.
