Mother Earth Products, Inc. started in 1984 as a manufacturer, producer, and trader of agri-based products in Barangay Pampanga, Angeles City. Initially, the company embarked on cassava meat production for livestock feeds and charcoal (from Ipil-ipil) briquette processing for the local market. Cassava production is now under contract farming arrangements, while charcoal was discontinued due to the “jumping lice” infections afflicting Ipil-ipil trees.
In 1989, the company went into cattle breeding and fattening operations with a small abattoir which was expanded in 1990. When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in June 1991 and caused market dislocation, the company turned to feedlot operations and produced high value beef cuts and processed meat. It was able to recover from the effects of the Pinatubo eruption when it penetrated the market outside Pampanga.
Expanded sales motivated the company to establish an “AA” abattoir with cold storage facilities and expand its products to fresh and frozen beef and pork as well as processed meat like tocino, hotdog, and ham.
In 1998, the company transferred its meat processing operations to a new plant in Duquit, Mabalacat, Pampanga, while maintaining its “AA” abattoir in Angeles City, Pampanga. It also started to develop other products such as sisig, hotdog and beef franks varieties, tapa and longganisa, ham varieties, smoked meat products. In 2002, the company inaugurated the first “AAA” abattoir in Central Luzon.
