From Crop To Carton

Del Monte expert growers and shippers bring you delicious juice from all over the world that tastes as fresh as the day it was picked. Here is the journey for our orange juice from crop to carton.

Sun Ripened and Hand Picked

Over 100 years of growing and caring for fruit means we know exactly when the best time to pick it is.

 

We use different types of oranges to get different flavours for our juices. Our fruit comes from a variety of locations all over the world, where different ...

... climates help to produce the delicious fruit that goes into our juices. We blend these juices to make Del Monte juice taste great.

Nothing is Wasted

We use every part of the fruit so there is no waste at all.

 

The whole fruit is squeezed to extract the juice. The pulp, skin and pith are used to make animal feed. Oil from the skin is added back to the juice or used as a flavouring for other food and ...

... cosmetic production. We also separate the pulp from the juice. Sometimes, we use the pulp from a different type of orange to make our ‘with bits’ juices taste great.

Lower Environmental Impact

Our juice is made into concentrate before shipping so we don’t needlessly transport water around the world.

 

Our Juice is heated gently at low pressure to remove some of the water. This results in the product having 5 times less volume than not from concentrate juice ...

... and using much less energy and resources to transport. Oils that are captured during this process are added when blending the juice back from concentrate.

A Perfect Juice Blend

The reason the original taste of our fruit juice is so good is no secret.

 

We take the concentrate and then add back in our fruit essence oils and top notes along with water to make a consistently great tasting fruit juice.

For our ‘with bits’, we carefully select the right pulp to compliment the juice for that extra taste and flavour.

Fresher for Longer

Long life juices need a bit more care to keep the juice tasting great.

 

Ambient cartons are super clever packs – the layers of polyethylene, aluminium and paperboard keep Del Monte juice fresh for months without the need for preservatives or refrigeration. 

Fresher for Longer

Carton packs are among the most environmentally friendly packaging solutions available and because they are longer life they don’t need constant chilling to keep them fresh.
