With heavy investments into organic pineapple farms over the past decade, Westlake Village, Calif.-based Dole Food Co. is experiencing significant growth in its organic pineapple business, said Bil Goldfield director, corporate communications.

“Like organic bananas, we’ve long been the largest U.S. grower and distributor of fresh organic pineapples and continue to invest in this area to meet expected increased demand,” he said.
