Fresh produce multinational Dole Food Company's European arm has responded to allegations made in a report by Consumers International and a documentary by Guardian Films of the United Kingdom, related to intensive tropical fruit production in Costa Rica.

Dole said that it would like to clarify and correct some of the information released in the report.

“We work to achieve harmonious relationships with those around us. In addition to the year-round, steady employment we generate in our farms and pack-houses, we are active in sports, medical, infrastructure, environmental and educational activities in the areas we operate,” Dole said.
