Add Tropical and Customer Appeal With Quality DOLE Pineapple Tidbits

Westlake Village CA (February 2008)—In the pizza business, nothing succeeds like success: that’s why Hawaiian Pizza has become a menu classic. The combination of juicy, tangy pineapple and crisp, salty Canadian bacon attracts devoted fans from the deep Pacific to the far Atlantic oceans. A qualified and respected pineapple expert, Dole offers operators a wide selection of pizza-ready pineapple styles and cuts, from DOLE Tropical Gold® Pineapple and DOLE Fresh Frozen Pineapple to the ever-popular DOLE Pineapple Tidbits.

For operators looking beyond the standard pizza toppings, Dole also maintains a recipe database that includes trendy tropical pizza applications like Carnitas and Mango Pizza and two fruit-filled varieties of Fruit Empanadas—Apple and Pineapple-Mango.
