Background of the Enterprise

With the support of St. Mary's College of Tagum, a community-based coco vinegar processing enterprise called Sukaan was established, four years ago. SMC has been keeping a strong management oversight on the operations of the Sukaan for 2 years since the tribal council is not yet fully capacitated to run the collective enterprise. In 2012, the organization enrolled in IP LeD program with the hope to improve production, marketing and management systems of their coco vinegar enterprise.
