Del Monte Philippines responded

Del Monte Philippines, Inc. (Del Monte) categorically denies a report issued by Global Witness implying inappropriate business behaviour. There is no grain of truth in the false allegations that Del Monte was involved in the incidents described in the report. Del Monte regrets that its comprehensive response to the allegations was not included in the Global Witness press release nor has Global Witness had the courtesy of providing Del Monte with an advance copy of the report.  Del Monte vigorously promotes the welfare of stakeholders across its global supply chain and enjoins its partners to do the same. In any event, Del Monte had discontinued the contract with the grower not long after the reported date of those incidents.

This is a response from the following companies: Del Monte Foods
