Fresh Del Monte Produce Demonstrates Commitment to Create Positive Impact on the Environment With Six New Energy Efficient Container Vessels

August 1, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

Fresh Del Monte Produce continues to fulfill its commitment to create a positive impact on the environment with the addition of six new energy efficient reefer container vessels to its fleet. The addition of the new vessels named – Del Monte Gold, Del Monte Rose, Del Monte Harvester, Del Monte Spirit, Del Monte Valiant and Del Monte Pride – marks a new chapter in environmental sustainability for the company. The first of the six vessels, the Del Monte Gold, embarked on the high seas earlier this month, traveling from Hong Kong, China towards the Panama Canal. Like its siblings, the Del Monte Gold has a full cargo capacity of 1,276 TEU with 634 plugs for forty-foot high cube reefer containers. Given the perishable nature of fresh fruits and vegetables, the air-cooled containers will maintain the cargo at specified temperatures, traveling in reefer mode with multiple temperature variants from -25C to 40C.
