Corporate Human Resources, Del Monte Philippines
13 years of service


“One of the highlights of my experience under Del Monte’s Supervisory Training (ST) Programme was my learning sessions with my mentor (yes, assigning a mentor to each trainee was part of the programme).  I joined the ST Programme fresh out of university and it helped a lot that I had a mentor (selected from the Company’s executive pool) who pushed me to give it my best – beyond merely passing the Programme. Given the challenging phases, projects and quarterly evaluations that I had to go through as an ST, it was valuable professionally that I had a mentor who is an authority in his field – who was able to explain things to me in a way that made sense,  made me appreciate and learn more. For my personal development, I would say that the straightforward and logical way my mentor gave feedback and perspectives helped a lot in making me understand the culture of the workplace and for my quick transition from a student life to a more responsible and mature professional life. I do believe that mentoring is a powerful tool in creating a high performance workplace and I am glad we have that here!”


Plantation Operations, Del Monte Philippines
5 years of service


“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.”

Cannery Operations, Del Monte Philippines
8 years of service


“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.”
