(Nov. 6, 11:25 a.m.) Dole Food Co. Inc. has completed its sale of Kent, England-based JP Fresh and its ripening and distribution business in France to Compagnie Fruitière Group, a French company in which Dole owns a 40% interest.

Dole announced in September that it had agreed to terms of the deal, which recently received clearance from French antitrust authorities. The company previously announced that funds from the sale would be used to reduce the Westlake Village, Calif.-based company’s debt.

Dole did not announce the sale price of the two subsidiaries. However, it said that the sale, combined with the sale of the company’s floral division and acreage in California, Hawaii and Mexico would net $145 million.

Those funds were in addition to the $132 million in asset sales the company disclosed in July. Those deals included properties in California, Florida and Hawaii.
