Fresh Del Monte Produce has renewed its 1995 contract with the Port of Hueneme for a third time, agreeing to partner with the California port for another five years.
Del Monte, a fresh fruit and vegetables producer and distributor, and the port have been in partnership for 34 years, since 1979.
“A lot has changed, but the partnership between the port and Del Monte has only gotten better with time,” said Jason Hodge, harbor board president, in a written statement. “We are proud that a world class customer like Del Monte choses the Port of Hueneme for their West Coast operations.”
Chuck Caulkins, Del Monte’s port manager, added: “We’re very happy with the continuation of our presence on the West Coast. The port has been a valuable partner in helping us stay competitive in an increasingly regulated business environment.”
