DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Growing Beyond Borders

Del Monte Pacific acquired two key businesses. The company acquired a 40% stake in Field Fresh Foods Private Ltd., a company based in India which grows and markets fresh fruit and vegetable to the global market.

In a letter, informing Del Monte colleagues on the FieldFresh acquisition, DMPL Managing Director and CEO Jose Campos, Jr. said the new milestone “further expands our business internationally.” FieldFresh produces a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables, including exotic and ethnic varieties, for markets in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The company operates world-class research facilities and collaborative farms with key growers across India. The company also acquired the S&W brand and distribution rights from Del Monte Foods USA for all markets except the Americas, Australia and New Zealand. The S&W brand originated in the United States and is now a strong global brand for premium quality processed fruits and vegetables.

DMPL brings to these partnerships its expertise in fruit growing, manufacturing and international marketing. FieldFresh provides DMPL extensive Indian fresh fruit and vegetable operations, and access to the domestic wholesale and retail channels for Del Monte branded processed products. The S&W brand bolsters DMPL's portfolio of premium food product brands.

Sharing expertise.
