Based on the introduction of Piña Fiber Processing, Mindanao doesn't have a list of Fiber Processing location. I supposed there is a huge Pineapple plantation in Bukidnon owned by Del Monte and many small farms owned by local farmers. Might be a good opportunity for people in Bukidnon and CDO... just my 2 cents!

Thank you for the more than 2 cents ! The variety of pineapple that is used for fiber processing in Aklan is Spanish Red, considered to produce prime quality threads. In Camarines, they use the Queen pineapple but the fiber produced is of lower quality. If farmers in Bukidnon and CDO are planting these varieties then this is a great opportunity for them.

Thanks Jinah for the info. That surely awakened my interest on Piña Fiber processing. Though i'm 6-hr drive away from CDO, i will check with my friends what variety are planted in their areas. Also, I supposed Del Monte's interest is on the fruit than on the leaves (fiber).

I wonder why FIDA does not have a comprehensive presentation on Piña Fiber Processing on their website.
