Additionally chúng is from 眾 and dầu is an earlier borrowing of 油 (du).

could you also say, We make cooking oil?

Yes. Sản xuất is more for mass production rather than low quantity home made stuff though just to be clear.

What is wrong with my translation "We are producing cooking oil." Why is this marked wrong?
