Marks & Spencer, a customer of the 2,100-acre farm, presented Westlake Village, Calif.-based Dole Food Co. with the award and a £1,000 ($1,288) prize, according to a news release.


The money will be donated to workers’ associations to help fund family activities, Danilo Roman, general manager of Dole’s Standard Fruit de Costa Rica, said in the release.
