Following the development, Dole Italia has been named the official fresh fruit supplier and official women partner of La Beneamata.
During Serie A and Coppa Italia matches, Dole Italia will be present in the San Siro hospitality rooms for Inter’s home games. The club officials can purchase items from the new official fruit supplier on the pre-match menu.
Furthermore, the multinational fruit brand will also be lending its support to the women’s wing of the club as the official women partner. Throughout the season, the players and staff of the Biscione women’s first team will participate in both online and offline events.
Before this signing, the unit already added companies like U-Power, Nike, Enel, BPER Banca, La Molisana, Santa Margherita, SWM Motorcycles, Shineray Motors, Gatorade, and Acqua S.Bernardo, and Qatar Airways to its commercial portfolio.
Alessandro Antonello, CEO Corporate, Inter Milan FC, stated, “We are happy to welcome Dole Italia, a leaving company in the food sector, into our family of partners. This agreement unites two brands that have the importance for sport on health and wellbeing at the centre of their missions. We are also very happy that Dole Italia has decided to support Inter Women, recognising the value of associating with our Women’s First team.”
Giusto Curti, General Manager, Dole Italia, commented, “For years, Dole has fostered a close relationship with elite sport, an area we are very connected to through the values and principles of sacrifice, respect, sharing, teamwork, as well as great attention to the correct nutrition, of course. It is therefore with great pride that we announce this partnership with Inter, the club that brings pride to Italy. We are particularly thrilled to be supporting the women’s team, with whom we are sure we will follow a wonderful and winning path.”
