Revenues from Continuing Operations (the two lines of fresh produce businesses remaining with the new Dole)Revenues decreased 11% to $4.2 billion for the year ended December 29, 2012, primarily due to the divestitures of fresh fruit subsidiaries in Germany and Spain, which represented $539 million of the sales decrease. Fresh fruit revenues, excluding the impact of the divestitures, decreased 2% as a result of lower pricing in North America bananas and unfavorable euro and Swedish krona foreign currency movements in Europe. This was partially offset by higher volumes of fresh pineapple sold and improved pricing for Chilean deciduous fruit. Fresh vegetables revenues increased 8% primarily due to improved pricing for packaged salads and sales from the October 2011 berry acquisition, which contributed $68 million to sales in 2012. This was partially offset by lower pricing for fresh-packed vegetables. Excluding the sales from the berry business acquisition, fresh vegetables revenues improved 3%.
