Why should we do anything? From the article, the key point is:

Del Monte said it was no longer economically feasible to grow pineapple in Hawaii because it can be produced for less elsewhere.

As much as I don't like jobs being lost, companies can't go around hemorraging money with producing products at a higher cost than they need to.

There is one highlight at the end of the article:

Maui Pineapple has expressed interest in the Kunia property, while Dole said it was not.

Perhaps Maui Pineapple might be able to retain some of those 700 jobs.
