It's hard to resist the tangy sweetness of pineapples, which is probably why they used to be found outside homes to welcome new guests. The historically rich fruit, a symbol of friendship and hospitality, makes a refreshing accompaniment to a number of tasty summer dishes and drinks.   

From barbecues to sweet treats, DOLE® Canada's line of fresh tasting pineapple products will turn your recipes into memorable meals. Canned pineapple chunks, tidbits, slices and 100% Premium Pineapple Juice compliment many dishes while saving on prep time, so you can spend more time enjoying the summer.


Your summer isn’t complete without a party to end the season. DOLE® wants to give you and 12 friends a chance to party like a pineapple at an end of summer bash hosted in your backyard!

Enjoy the party and let DOLE® handle the rest. One lucky Foodism reader will win catered pineapple-inspired hors d’oeuvres and delicious pineapple cocktails, specially curated and served by Drinksmith. Plus, DOLE® will transform your backyard or rooftop with tropical themed décor complete with swag bags for you and your friends.
