Century Pacific Food Expands Coconut Plant CapacityThursday, February 24, 2022
Century Pacific Food, Inc. (CNPF), one of the Philippine’s largest branded food companies, is expanding its coconut facility in Mindanao to serve the needs of more clients globally. The P700 million expansion which is expected for completion by the end of the first quarter, will increase the plant capacity by 50% and add new lines to the facility following the extension and expansion of long-term contracts with major partners, Linaco and Vita Coco in 2020.
The Linaco Group which is based in Malaysia is a leading regional coconut products producer with an extensive range of high value products sold in major retail outlets locally and overseas. It is present in over 40 countries, located across Europe, the Middle East, China, Hong Kong, and Australia. Vita Coco is the world’s leading coconut water brand, with CNPF as one of its largest and long-time manufacturers. The company has produced many of the brand’s coconut products, including packaged coconut water.
In 2019, CNPF launched its own line of branded coconut products called “Coco Mama.” The range is composed of culinary packaged coconut cream. The brand has been posting exponential growth since its launch, fueled by both organic demand and the pandemic. Other Coco Mama products include Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Coconut Sugar blends.
