Del Monte Pacific Ltd. (DMPL) believes that its operations have contributed to regional economic growth, creating a multiplier effect on the local economy by fueling businesses which support the Group, and serving the day-to-day needs of our employees and their families.


Economic Impact











DMPL has 6,300 regular employees in the Group, close to 4,700 seasonal employees in the U.S. and about 17,700 service providers who work in different areas of our operations in the Philippines.


DMFI’s relationships with farmers extend to more than three generations.    Vegetables, fruits and tomatoes are contractually grown on farms. Some Del Monte fruit growers include farm families that have produced for Del Monte for over 70 years. Our Company’s growth has a positive benefit on farms across the U.S.


Our pineapple plantations in southern Philippines encompass 3 cities and 25 municipalities in Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental, Mindanao. Around 20,000 families or approximately 100,000 individuals directly or indirectly depend on the Company’s operations including fruit growers, harvesters, truckers, and maintenance crews.


1. Del Monte Pacific grew sales by 3% to US$2.4 billion on higher US and international sales.


2. Gross profit and EBITDA were down by 2.5% and 6.2% to US$607 million and US$329.7 million, respectively, on higher costs.


3. DMFI generated US$1.73 billion of sales or about 72% of Group sales, higher by 5%, driven by sustained growth across almost all categories, attributed to pricing adjustments, distribution gains for vegetable and JOYBA bubble tea, increased sales of fruit cups, as well as incremental sales of US$35.1 million from Kitchen Basics.

4. Philippine market sales were up 7% in peso terms, but down 4% in U.S. dollar terms, on higher culinary, beverage and new product sales, while the international business delivered 11.5% higher sales on increased fresh and packaged product sales.


5. Net income declined to US$16.9 million from US$100.0 million due to one-off costs of US$55.2 million (post tax and non-controlling interest), of which US$50.2 million was booked in the first quarter as DMFI redeemed its Notes and refinanced it with a long-term credit facility that has lower interest rates.


Without these one-off costs, DMPL EBITDA and net income would have been US$337.2 million and US$72.2 million, lower by 4% and 28%, respectively.
