 Del Monte Fresh Produce’s Hawaii subsidiary is one of the first farms to resolve its case with the EEOC, according to the release.

“We commend Del Monte Fresh Produce for taking a bold step to holding farm labor contractors accountable and to show its commitment to ensuring farmworkers are treated with dignity and protected under federal anti-discrimination laws,” Anna Park, regional attorney for the EEOC’s Los Angeles District Office said in the release.

“We hope this is wake-up call for others in the agricultural industry to follow Del Monte Fresh Produce’s lead in recognizing signs of potential abuses by farm labor contractors and taking proactive steps to hold them accountable.”
