  • Del Monte Pineapple is Pulling Out of Hawaii

    Del Monte has announced that it will stop planting pineapple on their Kunia, Oahu plantation effective immediately, and that Del Monte will completely cease operations in Hawaii in 2008 after the last of the 2006 pineapple crop has been harvested. Del Monte says they were forced to make this decision because it is no longer economically feasible to grow pineapple in Hawaii because it can be produced for less in other parts of the world. Del Monte has been growing pineapple in Hawaii since 1916, when their company was called California Packing Corporation. Del Monte's main competitors in Hawaii are Dole Pineapple of Wahiawa and the Maui Pineapple Company.
