The world’s largest fresh fruit and vegetable company might be sold.

Less than five months after filing to go public, Dole Food Co. is reportedly exploring a sale. According to the Wall Street Journal, the first round of bids were due last week, with private-equity firms among those potentially interested.

The dual-track process of preparing for a public offering and considering a sale is not uncommon, notes the Wall Street Journal, continuing that Dole Food could garner a valuation in the $2 billion range.
