The company is in the oil palm business. Its primary activity is the extraction process of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) to CPO in its mill plant situated at Malubong, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon with a capacity of 10 tons per hour producing an average of 100 tons of CPO per day for ten hour operation. This product is a raw material for manufacturers that process both food and non-food commodities (ex. Household cooking oil, biodiesel, soap, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, noodles and pasta, non-dairy creamers, etc.) The sources of the FFBs are subsidiaries of ABERDI and various independent growers of oil palm. The oil extraction ratio of crude palm oil ranges from 15% to 20% while palm kernel recovery ranges from 2% to 5% respectively. Other products are sludge oil, fiber, and shell, empty bunch, sludge cake as non-food uses.
The company started the construction of the 50 tonner/day palm oil physical refinery with fractionation last December 2012. This is set to be operational by June 2013 and projected to produce 1,000 metric tons of palm olein per month.
