Coral Gables, Florida-based Fresh Del Monte Produce, a distributor of fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, has launched a new pineapple product – Grandissimo Gold.
Grandissimo Gold is a larger-sized pineapple offering similar quality, sweetness and nutritional benefits as a traditional Del Monte Gold Extra Sweet pineapple.
Full of fiber and vitamin C, Grandissimo Gold offers consumers about 25 percent more fruit than standard pineapples – up to three meals and five servings. This allows for versatility for creative cooking and is ideal when serving larger meals or developing recipes when one pineapple size does not fit all.
The pineapples are available at select BJ’s, Costco and Sam’s Clubs locations across 13 states. Fresh Del Monte follows sustainable practices for planting, harvesting and transporting Grandissimo Gold pineapples, in addition to other produce the distributor carries.
Fresh Del Monte Produce is a producer, marketer and distributor of fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, as well as a leading producer and distributor of prepared food in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Fresh Del Monte markets its products worldwide under the Del Monte brand. The company also markets its products under the Mann brand and other related trademarks.
In 2022, it was ranked as one of “America’s Most Trusted Companies” by Newsweek based on an independent survey rating companies on three different touchpoints, including customer trust, investor trust, and employee trust.
