Samar Coco Products, a Philippine-based company that ventures out towards the manufacture of Crude Coconut Oil and Refined Coconut Oil, with their by-products Copra Cake and CFAD respectively. The prevalence of coconut in the archipelago has provided us ample supply in order to succeed in this trade. We operate in Central and Southern Philippines and have been a vital member of the coconut industry since 1994. Our facilities in both regions convert coconut meat, transforming it into products that satisfy the unique needs of various clients worldwide. Our Crude Coconut Oil product serves as a raw material in production of various consumer product in the form of glycerin that is used as solvent, antifreeze, plasticizer, soaps, shampoos, cosmetics, cooking oil, margarine, and various pharmaceuticals and industrial uses. At present, the company operates in two factories that cater to the growing global demand. One of the factories is located on a coastal area in Central Philippines, and the other is situated in Southern Philippines. These two facilites have a combined capacity of 17,000 metric tons of Crude Coconut Oil and 9,000 metric tons of Copra Cake per month. The factories also invested in special equipments that can produce 6,000 metric tons of Refined Coconut Oil (RB-Cochin, RBD-Edible Oil) and 180 metric tons of Coconut Fatty Acid Distillate per month.
Known as "basic industrial grade oil". Basically, CNO is an end-product of squeezing out the oil from Copra (dried coconut meat) by the use of expeller press and then refined to eliminate impurities/contaminants. Coconut oil has the attribute of being mild on the skin, thus it is used as moisturizer. It can also be used as cleansing agent and protection against the sun. Therefore, it is often used as raw material for oleochemicals, manufacturing soap, shampoo, and cosmetics products.

Copra Cake (CC) is the left over residue of a coconut after its oil extraction. Copra Cake is a principal ingredient for fish, shrimp, livestock feeds. Due to the high protein of coconut, its residue has become a valuable concentrated feed additive which is a principal ingredient for livestock feeds. Some research found that the feeds mixed with copra cake are a favorite of dairy cattle. This mixture also increases the fatty ingredients of their milk and gives it a creamy, sweetish, nutty flavor.
