Powering the Hero Within: Dole & Disney’s Initiative
At 167 years old, Dole knows a thing or two about longevity as well. At the same time Mickey was being introduced to the world, 2,500 miles across the Pacific in Hawaii, James Drummond Dole was overseeing a 20,000-acre pineapple plantation that would grow into the world’s largest provider of fresh fruits and vegetables. In Honduras, a precursor to Dole’s Latin American operations, there were already hospitals and schools being opened for its thousands of employees growing bananas for a hungry world.
Nine decades later, Dole and Disney come together to celebrate Mickey’s 90th Anniversary with four months of activities highlighted by fresh takes on some iconic recipes and new dishes honoring a True Original and the two brands’ long collaborative friendship.
It’s the culmination of Dole’s yearlong “Powering the Hero Within” initiative, an ambitious healthy-eating alliance that marries Dole fruits, vegetables and nutrition with the most popular Disney films and characters.
