Department of Agriculture’s Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita continues to bring the best of farmers into the limelight.
As a project that strongly supports the direct farmer-to-consumer market linkage, DA-RFO1’s Kadiwa project this time, goes hand in hand with Robinsons Malls’ very own ‘Locally Sourced,’ a program that supports the Micro Small Enterprises (MSEs) in the region by providing a venue for locals to market their quality made Filipino products through trade fairs.
Starting October 30, fresh farmers’ produce, processed food products, garden plants, and handicrafts will be exhibited by the 23 invited farmers’ associations and MSEs at the Robinson’s Mall, Calasiao, Pangasinan. It will last until November 1.
“This is the first time that a private institution has initiated an invitation to the Department of Agriculture for a collaborative program supporting farmers, fisherfolk, and MSEs in the region,” said Regional Technical Director for Operations Erlinda F. Manipon. in appreciation to the management of Robinsons Malls of their effort in supporting the local business industry in the region.
“The mission of ‘Locally Sourced’ is also just in time with the upcoming National Rice Awareness Month theme this November promoting to grow local, buy local, eat local, which may not only be applicable in the rice industry but also including other commodities in the region,” Manipon added.
Another set of this collaborative exhibit is scheduled on November 15 to 17.
