CASA was born from the success of Central Azucarera de Bais, Inc. (CAB). Which is also majority owned by the Chan family. CAB is one of the oldest sugar mills in the Philippines having been established in 1918 by Compania General de Tabacos de Filipinas, known more popularly as ‘Tabacalera’.
In 1979, Antonio Chan, then a prominent sugar trader, acquired CAB from the Tabacalera group signaling his family’s initial foray into sugar manufacturing Last 2020, CAB completed a factory-wide modernization project modeled almost identically after CASA’s technological success.
CASA’s primary business is sugar milling with its facilities having a maximum milling capacity of 8,000 tons of cane per day. Its main products are raw sugar and its by-products such as sugarcane molasses.
On March 31, 2011, the Department of Energy approved the registration of the Company as a Renewable Energy Developer of Biomass Energy Resources covered by Biomass Renewable Energy Operating Contract no. 2011-03-021 that took effect on the same date.
