FRESH DEL MONTE FLORIDA PORT "HELL BENT" ON ATTENDING IPO Global Pineapple Conference

Port Manatee Officials have mounted a last minute offensive to gain access to the IPO Global Pineapple Conference scheduled for this Thursday March 20, 2019.


Port Manatee is Fresh Del Monte's Port of entry for Pineapples and Bananas among other commodities that the multinational distributes in the southeastern USA.


Fresh del Monte to date has not expressed any interest in the IPO and this turn of events is rather curious.







"As discussed Matty Appice will be attending the IPO this week. As a visual expression of our interest I have attached a picture as a reminder.

Muchas gracias y un cordial saludo."



~Carlos Buqueras Executive Director Port Manatee

3. Siesta Key Public Beach, Siesta Key, Florida TripAdvisor The "clean, hard-packed sand" make the free
