Coral Gables, FL (June 14, 2022) – Fresh Del MonteProduce Inc., one the world’s largest distributors of high-quality fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, has officially launched its Mini Honeyglow® pineapple in North America. The newest member of the Honeyglow® family brings the same quality and sweetness as the original Honeyglow® pineapple but it is now available in a miniature size for consumers seeking smaller or single-size servings.
“The Mini Honeyglow is the perfect addition to Fresh Del Monte’s pineapple offerings,” said Pablo Rivero, Vice President of Marketing, Fresh Del Monte, N.A. “Based on more than 100 years of knowledge and experience, coupled with our consumer research, we are giving consumers the sweetness they desire now in a smaller, more convenient size option.”
Every Del Monte® Honeyglow® pineapple is left to mature naturally on the plant for a few extra days, which ensures a riper and sweeter product than traditionally harvested pineapples – while creating the perfect balance of color and taste. The pineapples are then hand selected to ensure a high shell color, satisfying the consumers who associate ripe, premium pineapples with a bright, golden shell.
Fresh Del Monte’s new, smaller pineapple is currently available at Kroger, City Market, Fred Meyers and Ralphs locations across 13 states, retailing at under $3.00 per pineapple in most markets. As with all other Fresh Del Monte products, the Mini Honeyglow® pineapple follows sustainable practices for planting, harvesting, and transporting.
