Dole sells Rainforest Alliance-certified bananas

Dole Food Company has risen to the task to meet the Rainforest Alliance's stringent environmental and social standards, earning certification for banana farms in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Honduras.

In a press release the company said the certification involved protecting wildlife habitat and workers, with the Rainforest Alliance Certification seal now found on Dole bananas throughout the U.S.

"We are excited that our banana farms have earned Rainforest Alliance certification, reflecting our commitment to sustainability," said Mike Cavallero, who heads up Dole's North American tropical and fresh fruit division.

"Being able to add the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal to our bananas is a great reminder to our customers of Dole’s commitment to environmental stewardship and the well-being of farm workers."
