“ Five years ago, I started as an outsourced accountant for Del Monte. Months of hard work later, I was fortunate to formally join the family. I say family because throughout my stay, Del Monte felt like my second home. There is sense of belongingness and camaraderie among people you work with.

We work and champion together to achieve one goal. Every day is a challenge yet professionally rewarding! There is positive reinforcement from peers and superiors to do better (if not excel) which also extends beyond Finance, allowing me to consider different aspects in our industry.

In 2 years, my efforts were recognized. I joined the roster of Del Monte's young leaders and relocated to Cagayan de Oro in search of new challenges. The holistic growth I gained through Del Monte make me eager to welcome challenges the future may bring. The unknown may be daunting but as long as I have my family with me, I look forward to more years ! ”

“In Bukidnon, Del Monte is perhaps the most prestigious company name. When I was studying BS Agricultural Engineering in Central Mindanao University, many classmates wished to work for Del Monte. After passing the Licensure Examination for Agricultural Engineers, I applied and earned a slot on the Plantation Supervisory Programme. It’s a hands-on programme where you get to learn agri-practices (1 year) and leadership basics (½ year). It was hard, but it prepared me well for the job ahead. In four years, I’ve handled different phases of our operations – from seed collection and planting to growing pineapples. Now I lead nearly 100 workers in one of our expansion sites. I had personally asked to be transferred to this site : I love the Pioneer’s Challenge, where you get to grow new fields. The place also brings me closer to my wife and two children. Family inspires me, gets me more efficient at work. I think Del Monte will be my first and last employer.”

“Building my career at Del Monte has been both exciting and challenging. I’ve seen myself grow over the years. Mine is a journey from being a fresh graduate in mechanical engineering of the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) in my hometown of Iligan (Lanao del Norte) to being a system engineer in one of the biggest companies in Iligan City, then finally to Cagayan de Oro (an hour’s drive away) where you can find one of the world’s largest pineapple canneries. Today, I manage around 500 workers in our packaging and warehousing operations. Here, creativity thrives and innovations are welcome. I’ve gained a sense of fulfillment from helping others grow. Looking forward, I see many opportunities where each employee can contribute to building our global competitiveness.

Our culture is deeply rooted in people, giving us a reassuring sense of Family. We feel well-covered, with fringe benefits considered among the country’s best. Our loved ones learn and grow with us through company-organized social programmes. Looking back, I know I’ve made the right choice.”
