Franklin Baker Company of the Philippines is one of the largest Philippine producers of desiccated, processed and value added coconut products. The company traces its roots in the United States when Mr. Franklin Baker Sr. established in 1895 the Franklin Baker Company, Inc. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our company pioneered the manufacture of desiccated coconut in the Philippines when the first desiccated coconut plant in the Philippines was inaugurated in Sta. Mesa, Manila in 1922 and production facilities were later transferred to San Pablo, Laguna in 1927 (later rebuilt in 1947 after World War II). The second desiccated coconut plant was put up in Davao del Sur (Island of Mindanao) in 1968.

We currently employ over 200 persons across 2 manufacturing sites located in San Pablo City, Laguna and Davao.
