Dole Pizza Program Delivers New Menu of Tropical Pizza Toppings and Fillings

Westlake Village, CA (April 2007)— Attendees visiting the Dole Packaged Foods booth at the 2007 Pizza Expo were greeted with several new twists on the tropical pizza experience. Fusing the popularity of pineapple as a pizza topping with the trendy appeal of Latin flavors, Dole introduced Santa Fe Chicken Pizza, Carnitas and Mango Pizza and two fruit-filled varieties of Fruit Empanadas—Apple and Pineapple-Mango. The pizza toppings and fillings also showcased DOLE® Tropical Gold® Pineapple, DOLE Pineapple Tidbits, DOLE Diced Pineapple and Diced Mango, two new forms of DOLE Frozen Fruits, and DOLE Frozen Apple Slices.
