Walnut Creek, California-based Del Monte Foods Inc. has launched Del Monte Fruit Infusions, expanding the brand’s presence in the produce refrigerated aisle. This new line of products incorporates fruit chunks infused with antioxidants.
According to a 2021 survey by the International Food Information Council, one in five Americans actively seek health benefits from foods, with energy, digestive health and immune function being among the top motives.

“We understand that nourishing and delicious snacks are important to consumers, which is why we’re constantly innovating new products in this category,” said Bibie Wu, chief marketing officer for Del Monte Foods. “Del Monte Fruit Infusions offer on trend flavor variety and the benefits of real fruit and added vitamins and antioxidants. Perfect for those looking for a pick me up that can still fit within a healthy lifestyle.”
