Global food giant Dole Packaged Foods is delighted to announce it has appointed St Luke’s to its global roster following an internal review and test project.
St Luke’s will work with Dole on adhoc creative projects that are born out of the global purpose platform 'Sunshine For AllTM'.
Earlier this year Dole announced The Dole Promise, with its three pillars around nutrition, sustainability and the creation of shared value.
Better for People: Access to sustainable nutrition for one billion people by 2025, moving towards zero processed sugar in all Dole products by 2025. Better for Planet: zero fruit loss from Dole farms to markets by 2025, zero fossil-based plastic packaging by 2025. net zero carbon emissions in Dole operations by 2030. Better for all Stakeholders: Dole will continue to positively impact all farmers, communities and people working for Dole – through its commitment to equal opportunity, living wages, and an ever-increasing level of safety, nutrition, and wellbeing. The company also aims for a 50% increase in the value of its business by 2025.
Rupen Desai, global chief marketing office, Dole Packaged Foods says: “The world is becoming increasingly unequal, when it comes to accessing good nutrition. We believe that nutrition and access to it should be a human right. This will take creativity and systemic change to address and we need all the help we can get. We are excited to have St Luke’s as an important partner on this journey, as we bring Sunshine For AllTM to more people around the world.”
Ed Palmer, managing director at St Luke’s adds: “Very rarely do you get to work with a partner with such an audacious plan to create a more sustainable future. We’re honoured to be part of Dole’s journey to deliver good nutrition for everyone.”
Richard Denney, ECD at St Luke’s comments: “Dole have an unshakeable belief in the power of creativity to make a difference in the world. If our first project due to launch in December is anything to go by, we’re going to do great things together.”
