Founded in Hawaii in 1851, Dole is the world's largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables. Dole markets a growing line of packaged and frozen foods, and is a produce industry leader in nutrition education and research. The Dole brand means the finest, high-quality products. Dole will continue to meet customers' expectations by consistently providing products that meet the highest standard - the Dole standard. For Dole, anything less is unacceptable. Pineapples have a regal air about them, possibly due to the top section of the pineapple being referred to as a ‰ÛÏcrown‰. The golden fruit inside the pineapple shell offers a rich sweetness that may also add to its regal image. Fresh pineapples are not only tasty, they also are the only known source of bromelain, an enzyme with anti-inflammatory properties. Pineapple is also a naturally fat and cholesterol free food that is rich in Vitamin C. Store unopened can in a cool, dry place or if you prefer a chilled fruit snack, keep an unopened can in your refrigerator. Canned pineapple, with its sweet tangy flavor, is a great compliment to all types of dishes including appetizers, main dishes, salads, side dishes, beverages and desserts.
