The mill was built at the farm Finca Magdalena, -named after this farm- on Rodeo, in the department of Escuintla. Initially, its operations were concentrated only on the production of molasses as raw material for the manufacturing of liquor.
Magdalena is the first mill in the region with three tandem mills.
Electricity comes from the transformation of thermal energy from the combustion of sugarcane bagasse and the production of steam. The generated electricity is used for domestic consumption and the national power grid.
