Senior Director of Innovation & New Ventures
Del Monte Foods
How can a company revitalize its innovation program—from consumer insights all the way through R&D and packaging? In the past three years, Del Monte Foods has tripled its number of innovation initiatives. In 2019 alone it launched 31 products launched and earned three Product of the Year awards. Mario DiFalco, Del Monte’s senior director of Innovation & New Ventures will share Del Monte’s shift to a more fast-paced, agile and people-first process of creating prototypes and soliciting early consumer and customer feedback.
