The relatively stable and low prices, and thus profits, that result from our modern food systems are not reflective of the life-sustaining value of food. As a company focused on highly nutritious fruits and vegetables, Fresh Del Monte is one of the best positioned food manufacturers among the companies that we have analyzed. Fresh Del Monte Produce, Inc. operates in a manner that is a net positive for humanity, in large part due to Crop Production ($68.8 B), Economic Value ($2.0 B), and Medical Services ($387.3 M). Positive value from Crop Production is linked to an estimate of 1,426,569.7 equivalent years of life not lost to death or reduction in quality of life. It also produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. The Humankind Value of this company can improve with reductions in Calorie Conversion (-$7.2 B) and Air Pollution (-$4.4 B). Crop Production and Air Pollution are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Economic Value, Medical Services, and Calorie Conversion are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners.

How the Humankind Value Methodology Drives the Rankings

We take a quantitative, data-driven approach to estimating the economic impact that companies have on investors, customers, employees, and society at large, rolling social responsibility into a single dollar value that we use to represent what a company is contributing to humanity. As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
