That being said,  Dole held the Great Dole Cook-Off, an event that launched the brand’s line of delicious tomato sauces through an exciting cook-off among guests on August 26 at the Magsaysay Institute For Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA) .

The Cook-Off were divided into two segments that highlighted the use of Dole Tomato Sauce in the recipes. The first segment is a cooking demonstration from Charming Chef Jeremy Favia, one of the rising young chefs in television today and the second a cook-off between bloggers with Chef Jeremy and a Dole representative as judges.

The winner received gift packs and cash prize from Dole Philippines Packaged Foods Division.

Poch Zenarosa, Dole Philippines Packaged Foods Division’s Product Manager, explains in her opening remarks,
“Dole advocates healthy living through our products and activities. For this event, we like to highlight that being healthy should be part of our love for food, and this event highlights that it is easy to be healthy—Dole Tomato Sauce makes sure of that.”
Dole is the world’s largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables and packaged foods. For years, Dole has committed itself to furthering health and nutrition as is evident in their wide array of quality products such as canned pineapple solids, canned mixed fruits, canned beverages and packaged fruit snacks.
