In Thailand, Dole processes a variety of high quality packaged fruit products including pineapple slices and chunks, crushed pineapple, pineapple juice concentrate, clarified pineapple juice, tropical fruit salad, and cocktail, single strength juice and nectar and fruit puree.
Dole initially commenced operations in Thailand in 1972 by forming a joint venture with a group of Thai businessmen, operating as producer and exporter of canned pineapples, canned fruit, and pineapple juice concentrate. The company began its operation in the Canning Island at Ratchaburi province. Later, it moved to Hua Hin, Prachuabkirikhan province in 1973 to settle in a new cannery with its own plantation. The capacity and production of the Hua Hin plant has been expanded continually year by year. Dole also runs another plant in Rayong, Thailand.
