Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. has been named one of America’s Most Trusted Companies of 2023 by Newsweek for the second consecutive year.
This award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry ranking provider. “America’s Most Trusted Companies 2023” were identified in an independent survey based on a sample of about 25,000 U.S. residents who rated companies they know on all three trust touchpoints, including customer trust, investor trust, and employee trust. Newsweek looked at a pool of 3,100 U.S.-based companies (1,800 publicly-held and 1,300 privately-held) with revenues more than $500 million.
“We are humbled and grateful to once again be recognized as one of America’s Most Trusted Companies by Newsweek. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team members, who strive every day to earn the trust of our customers, consumers and stakeholders,” said Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman and CEO at Fresh Del Monte.
“It also underscores our unwavering commitment to honesty, transparency, and excellence in everything we do. We are proud of this achievement as we continue to maintain Fresh Del Monte’s high standards of trust and integrity.”
For more than 135 years, Fresh Del Monte has prioritized growing high-quality products, maintaining food safety throughout its operations, and conducting business sustainably. Since receiving the initial award in 2022, the company has further committed to its mission of trust and transparency by investing in cutting edge technology, such as blockchain-driven food safety and traceability technology and artificial intelligence.
Fresh Del Monte’s commitment to sustainability has been shown through metrics, such as reducing Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 22 percent compared with its 2019 baseline, only 5.5 percentage points shy of the company’s 2030 goal, as shown in the company’s latest sustainability report.
