The Diversified products division of Dole operates the business of Dole's year-round berries category — including strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries — in addition to other fruit products outside of its core tropical fruits. This year Dole Diversified NA also expanded to offer a 52-week supply program for grapes grown in Chile, Peru, and California. 

Ross is a seasoned produce industry veteran, joining Dole with more than 25 years working with leading brands, including Sunkist, Giumarra, West Pac Avocado, and most recently Del Monte Fresh. 

"We are excited to welcome Scott to our organization at a time in which we are expanding our product offerings". We are increasing our supply base with additional resources to manage double-digit sales increases across all our categories," said Bob Russo, general manager of Dole Diversified North America. "Scott's experience and tenure in the produce industry provide us further expertise. We target building new business opportunities within our advanced sourcing structure." Russo also said. 

Through partnerships with an extensive network of growers and packing operations across the U.S. and internationally from Mexico, Chile, Peru, and South Africa, Dole Diversified can provide a continuous 52-week supply of fresh products to all retail and wholesale channels.
