Canned food is the original convenience product. It enables seasonal food to be eaten all year round and makes exotic and ethnic food readily available. To maintain the high standards of the Del Monte brand, the fruit used for canning has to be of the best quality. Del Monte's canning operations ensures the goodness of the product by cooking the product in the can which retains the nutritional value. In addition, this process seals and preserves the contents and helps to prevent nutrient loss over time.
Del Monte is most famous for its Pineapple. As the number one marketer of fresh pineapples worldwide, including our Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet pineapple and a leadign marketer of canned and processed pineapples, pineapple expertise is at the very heart of our business.
Canned Pineapple is highly convenient, the perfect accompaniment to gammon, sweet and juicy on a pizza, or an exotic treat with ice cream. And don't forget it's healthy too!
Canned Fruit Cocktail
Fruit Cocktail consists of a mixture of peaches, pears, pineapples, grapes and cherries. Packing of Fruit Cocktail takes place when harvest times of pears, peaches and grapes overlap. The South African packing season starts in mid November and continues throughout April while Greek production starts in September and extends throughout October.
Canned Peaches and Apricots
Canned Peaches are also incredibly versatile and are delicious served in savory dishes, or on your breakfast cereal to add an extra healthy touch to the start of the day. Del Monte uses Yellow Cling Peaches which come from Greece and South Africa. Peach trees have 15 to 16 year growing cycles. Sweet and succulent, Del Monte canned apricots are delicious, nutritious and above all, convenient for today's lifestyles. Top with some natural yogurt or ice cream and sprinkle with chopped nuts for a speedy dessert the whole family will enjoy. The processing of Apricots is the same as for peaches. Del Monte uses mainly the Bulida variety from South Africa.
Sun ripened in the fruit orchards of South Africa, Del Monte Canned Pears are a superb quality product. Always perfectly ripe, they are a convenient alternative to fresh, perfect with cream or ice cream. Del Monte uses the Williams Bartlett variety of pears from South Africa. Unlike other fruit picked for canning, pears are harvested early and are ripened under controlled conditions. This reduces bruising during pre-cannery handling and helps to ensure a smooth texture. The pears are washed, peeled and cored and graded by size as required.
The delicious range is guaranteed to satisfy your cravings for new and exciting taste experiences. Conveniently prepared, Del Monte Exotics are easy and versatile. This fantastic fruity range ideal for people with busy lifestyles, as it eliminates the time and trouble of buying and preparing exotic fruit.
