Abstract


Herlang Subdistrict is the largest producer of coconut juice (along with Selayar Regency and Jeneponto
Regency) which is the raw material for coconut sugar production in South Sulawesi. Tugondeng Village is one of
the villages in Herlang District. About 80% of Tugondeng villagers work in the coconut sugar manufacturing
industry. However, this potential has not well developed due to the low economic value of brown sugar. To increase
the selling price of coconut sugar produced by Tugondeng Village, efforts need to be made to process coconut sap
and coconut sugar into products which have higher selling price, namely palm sugar. The steps taken to achieve the
objectives of this activity were : (a) presentation of material on how to process coconut sap and coconut sugar into

obtained show that the process of making palm sugar from coconut sap and coconut sugar is quite simple and the
palm sugar produced has longer shelf-life than coconut sugar
