DA intensifies its fight against agricultural waste

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino

The Department of Agriculture (DA) announced on Friday that more is being done to guarantee that there would be no or very little waste of agricultural products in the nation.

The DA announced in a statement that it will strengthen its connections with industrial customers to support producers in finding markets for their goods.

According to the statement, “The Department of Agriculture (DA) is strengthening market ties through contract farming with lodging facilities, dining establishments, and other institutional purchasers on the acquisition of surplus harvests.”

According to the statement, “the program will take the shape of pertinent assistance and interventions perceived to enable the transportation of produce to places where they are in need, with zero to minimal wastage and supply of excess agricultural items.”

Following reports of little tomato wastage in Nueva Vizcaya, the DA released the statement.

“The DA (is) looking into reports on the dumping of approximately 500 kilograms of small tomatoes from the Nueva Vizcaya Agricultural Trading (NVAT) on January 25, 2023,” it stated.

According to the NVAT, a contributing aspect to the situation may be consumers’ preference for larger tomatoes offered at comparable prices.

The DA stressed the necessity for an effective food mobilization strategy to prevent future occurrences of this nature.

According to the statement, “(this) will be implemented through the agency’s Enhanced Kadiwa grant’s distribution of delivery trucks and produce crates to more FCAs and towns.

The department believes that by employing this technique, overstock issues will be reduced while also achieving the administration’s objectives of helping farmers increase their income and guaranteeing a reasonable and sufficient supply of agricultural products for market consumers.

Ten municipalities have already been named as recipients of this distribution by the DA.

In order to help the nation meet its food sufficiency goals, the administration, led by President and concurrent Agriculture Secretary Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr., earlier committed to improving every link in the nation’s value chain.
