After 90 years in the islands, Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. said it would cease pineapple operations in Hawaii in a little more than two years. The company said it was no longer economically feasible to grow pineapple in Hawaii because it can be grown for less in other parts of the world. "It would be cheaper for Del Monte to buy pineapples on the open market than for the company to grow, market and distribute Hawaiian pineapple," the company said Wednesday.

"I don't intend to relinquish control of either of these companies, as has been maliciously reported," Carlos Cabal Peniche said in an open letter to the Mexican media, his first public response to the charges against him.

Like big goose eggs the color of money, avocados slide down the conveyor belt at Gerardo Perez's packing plant to be sorted, boxed, then loaded onto trucks for the caravan north to the U.S. market. "Business has never been so good," said Perez, co-owner of Avocado Export Co., a modern low-rise packing house dwarfed by surrounding fruit trees.
