Congratulations Jenny!

Come to Hamburg for Dole Energy-Day and join us in bringing the Energy Code to life – that was the call that went out to our interested bloggers. One of these had to be selected as “best post”, as one of our bloggers was to travel to the Dole research institute in Kannapolis in the USA. And the winner is…

Out you go! Light, air and exercise are good for us

For many people, summer is one of the nicest times of the year. And for good reason: this is when we can enjoy ourselves outdoors and recharge our batteries. It is precisely those of us who spend most of our days indoors in enclosed spaces who should make the most of the summer months to reap the physical and mental benefits.

Never too late to live longer!

Say you’ve made it to the ripe old age of 70 after a lifetime of not-so-great eating habits — why change now? Because you may live longer, research suggests. Eat healthy after 70 and you’ll boost your chances of reaching 80.

Significant protection provided by phytochemicals

Fruit and vegetables contain more than you would think. ‘Phytochemicals’ is a term that we frequently hear. These include several chemical compounds that can protect plants against external influences, such as UV radiation or pathogens, or attract useful insects. Read here why they should be a part of our daily diet.

A guest at Dole Energy-Day

It was exciting! I was a member of the Energy Crew at Dole Energy-Day in Hamburg on 20 April. I did not want to miss travelling from the USA to present the latest Dole studies and to give the bloggers important information on healthy eating.

Let Dole fulfil your heart’s desire

Each one of us probably has something that we literally want “with our whole heart”, perhaps something that we have wanted all our lives or something quite spontaneous arising from a specific occasion. Take a look at our competition and tell us which heartfelt wish you would like to come true. The top three winning entries will each receive a prize of EUR 4,000 to make their wish come true.

Hi, I’m Nick: Dole researcher with lots of energy

Do you ever wonder who is responsible for the latest Dole research findings on fruit and vegetables? The Dole Nutrition Institute plays a very important role in this regard. My name is Dr Nicholas Gillitt – Nick for short. I would like to tell you more about my exciting work for Dole!
