Eat an Organic Pineapple, Support Organic Farming Research!

March 2, 2015 - Dole has launched a month-long sales promotion that will contribute $1 to Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) for every box of DOLE®Organic pineapples sold in the U.S. and Canada from March 1-31. The promotion benefits not only OFRF and Dole’s network of organic producers, but also millions of winter-weary North Americans in need of a tropical pick-me-up.

“Is it too cold to have some friends over for organic pina colodas?” said OFRF Executive Director Brise Tencer. “I think not!”

Dole, founded in 1899 and one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of fresh fruit and vegetables, is also a leader in sustainable and organic production. Dole began offering organic bananas in 2001, and has since expanded into organic pineapples, vegetables and salad mixes.  

Organic Farming Research Foundation, founded in 1990, is a leading champion of American organic family farmers. OFRF works to foster the improvement and widespread adoption of organic farming systems, cultivating organic research, education, and federal policies that bring more farmers and acreage into organic production.
