Southern Fresh Products, Inc., an exporting company of fresh Del Monte Gold pineapples under the Del Monte label, helps empower community women with livelihood program.
These women-members who are dependent wives, mothers, or sisters of landowners or employees of SFPI get their source for their daily consumption out of their earnings from the livelihood project. Otherwise, they are plain home-buddies with no income to support their families.
