Fresh Del Monte Produce's Pablo Rivero Discusses New Mini Honeyglow® Pineapple
CORAL GABLES, FL - Fresh Del Monte Produce’s latest launch is bringing the sweetness of summer in a convenient single-serving size, as the provider is introducing its Mini Honeyglow® pineapple in North America. The Mini Honeyglow packs the same undeniably high quality and sweetness as the supplier’s original Honeyglow® pineapple, with a miniature size for consumers seeking smaller servings.
“The Mini Honeyglow is the perfect addition to Fresh Del Monte’s pineapple offerings,” said Pablo Rivero, Vice President of Marketing, Fresh Del Monte North America. “Based on more than 100 years of knowledge and experience, coupled with our consumer research, we are giving consumers the sweetness they desire now in a smaller, more convenient size option.”
Each Honeyglow pineapple is left to mature naturally on the plant for a few extra days, which allows for a sweeter and riper offering than traditionally harvested pineapples, a press release explained. These pineapples are then hand-selected to ensure a high shell color, attracting shoppers who associate ripe, high-quality pineapples with a bright golden outer shell.
Like all other Fresh Del Monte products, this sweet variety follows sustainable practices for planting, harvesting, and transporting.
The smaller, conveniently sized pineapple is currently available in Kroger, City Market, Fred Meyers, and Ralphs locations across 13 states at a price point of $3.00 per pineapple in most markets.
