Dole Celebrates World Maritime Day Highlighting the Importance of Gender Equality and Sustainability

27.9.2019

Dole Food Company joins The International Maritime Organization in celebrating the World Maritime Day every year on the 26th of September.

The theme this year is Empowering Women in the Maritime Industry, which aims to improve awareness on gender equality, coinciding with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal.

Historically, seafaring and vessel management has not been a preferred occupation by women. However, at Dole fifty percent of the company's vessel management team are women as well as three female officers aboard its vessels.

As an organization that manages and maintains its own shipping supply chain, ocean transport is a positive differentiator for Dole contributing to continuous improvement goals through operating efficiencies and carbon footprint reductions.  Dole is also addressing the expected 2020 regulatory requirements head on by implementing new technology scrubbers on five current vessels as well as on the new ships in order to meet SOx emission limits.

Renato Acuña, President of Dole Fresh Fruit Latin America, North America and Europe, commented, "These progressive steps in our shipping operations show the commitment that Dole has always placed on delivering the best product, in the best way possible for our communities."  Dole Food Company, Inc. is one of the world's largest producers and marketers of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables. Dole is an industry leader in many of the products it sells, as well as in nutrition education. For more information, please visit www.dole.com
