This gallery shows images of the ongoing construction of the new integrated coconut processing plant in Tupi, South Cotabato. Construction began in March 2016, following the groundbreaking ceremony held on December 2, 2015. The plant will provide many new job opportunities to the local farmers of Tupi and the surrounding municipalities, as well as boost the local coconut industry and allow it to compete on an international level.
The facility is located in a 2.2 hectare property that has an abundant supply of coconut and easy road network access to General Santos city. At full capacity, the plant is expected to process around 300 metric tons of coconuts a day to produce high quality coconut products like coconut cream and milk, virgin coconut oil, and coconut water concentrate.
