Pedada fruit is a mangrove fruit that lives in brackish waters which grows a lot in coastal areas, especially in Bengkalis Regency, namely Bandar Laksamana District, Sepahat Village. The base of the pedada fruit is wrapped in flower petals, and is non-toxic. Sepahat villagers rarely consume Pedada fruit directly because of its sour taste, so a lot of it is wasted. The fruit contains untapped nutrients. Besides being able to be consumed directly, Pedada Fruit can also be processed into high-value food products such as jam, syrup, and candy because of its high vitamin C content. By seeing this potential, an idea emerged to make the Pedada fruit food processing technology as a high-selling product. The purpose of this community service activity is to provide great added value in terms of the results of food product technology, thereby increasing economic value and income for the Sepahat Village Community, as well as increasing the knowledge of the community. The method used in this activity was counseling on the benefits and processing of Pedada fruit. This activity produces processed pedada fruit products in the form of syrup, jam, and candy as well as increasing the creativity of human resources in Sepahat Village, Bandar Laksamana District, Bengkalis Regency to create a food product home industry.
