The company is currently seeking partners for this initiative. Being eyed are entrepreneurs, startups, social impact enterprises, and non-government organisations. Dole said it could help these groups through its expertise in the following areas: food production, nutritional science, compostable packaging, supply chain, logistics, sustainable agriculture and fast-moving consumer goods spaces.
