Our business operates in communities that depend on us as much as we rely on them. We sustain their health and wellness, livelihood, and development.
DMPI aims to develop the quality of life of communities where it operates. The Foundation spearheads the Company’s corporate social responsibility in the local communities through its mission to promote social progress through community health and wellness, livelihood, education, youth development, skills training, delivery of basic community services, and environmental conservation.

Through the Foundation, the Company is able to focus on the communities where it operates, help provide education to, improve the livelihood and health of over 100 communities in the provinces of Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental.
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Del Monte Foundation, Inc., a non-stock and non-profit organization in the Philippines, spearheads our efforts as we expand our reach in the local community. The Foundation employs a framework for identifying and selecting community projects, in coordination with the DMPI Plantation and Cannery teams.
The Foundation’s mission is to raise the level of global health and wellness by bringing greater awareness on health, nutrition and food safety to our host communities.
Through the Del Monte Foundation, we help address various community concerns on sanitation, health and wellness.
Our Community Education Center has official accreditation from the Philippine Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) highlighting public-private sector cooperation for community education. Community-based skills trainings are also conducted to provide greater and easier access to technical education for the out-of-school youth and unemployed heads of families. The skills learned are used by the beneficiaries for employment or self-employment to augment their family’s income.
Through the Del Monte Foundation, gifted children earn quality education from primary levels up to post-graduate studies through our academic, grants-in-aid and sports scholarships. A scholar is supported in each of the communities where DMPI has operations.
Aside from scholarships, we work closely with the community to harness the potential of the youth to lead and transform their communities into self-sufficient units for nation-building.
We support the communities during the pandemic by donating food products and personal protection equipment to frontline workers.
