Pineapple scheme delay

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DOLE Philippines Inc (Dolefil) has halted its pineapple plantation expansion project in General Santos City, pending the resolution of the alleged row involving the land covered by the company's lease contract, reports SunStar General Santos. Dolefil had started to plant pineapples in the villages of Sinawal and San Jose, but was stopped by its vice president and managing director, Kevin Davis. In a statement, Davis said that Dolefil is still interested in the expansion programme, but have decided to put the project on hold out of respect for the ongoing investigation by the city council, adding that Dolefil will not insist on expanding in areas where "we feel our investments are not welcome."
