Dole Asia Holdings and its subsidiaries are focusing on both global awareness and immediate action with the launch of its Sunshine for All Fund, a $2 million annual fund that will support global strategic partnerships and innovation in the crucial areas of sustainability, food access and waste.
The fund is being launched in tandem with The Growing Distance, a short film that addresses the critical gaps the company sees as barriers to good nutrition for all. Startling and ever-worsening global statistics around nutrition are driving Dole's search for solutions. By partnering with the talented innovators, promising start-ups, and progressive partners, the Fund will address these gaps of affordability and waste, as well accessibility and acceptability – all driving to fulfill Dole's Promise and for People, the Planet, and our collective Prosperity.
Dole recognizes the need for collaboration with like-minded partners to join in the fight against food injustice around the world. Thus, the company is seeking partners – from entrepreneurs, start-ups, strategic thinking to social impact enterprises, and NGOs – to bring their expertise in food production, nutritional science, compostable packaging, supply chain, logistics, sustainable agriculture and fast-moving consumer goods, to bear.
