Opol coconut vendor

Coconut vendor in Opol, Misamis Oriental. The province is one of the country's major producers of coconut.

Misamis Oriental is self-sufficient in some crops. Forty-three percent of the land is cultivated with cereals, fruit trees, vegetables, root crops, and industrial, non-food plants. The top five agricultural products are coconut, banana, corn, rice, papaya and cassava.

The province is one of the country's major producers of coconut. This explains the presence of coco-based factories such as Pilipinas Kao, Inc., Fiesta Brands, IndoPhil Oil Mills, Limketkai and Sons Milling Corporation, and Pacific Activated Carbon Company.
