CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10), helmed by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado, through the Farm and Fisheries Clustering and Consolidation (F2C2) Program, conducted a stakeholders meeting on September 7, 2023, in this city
Said meeting aims to link the farmers’ cooperatives and associations (FCAs) from the different provinces in Northern Mindanao to potential institutional buyers who need supplies of various produce.
The institutional buyers include the National Food Authority (NFA), Misamis Oriental – Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, San Miguel Foods, Inc., and BestFriend Goodies.
In her message, DA-10 F2C2 focal person Gay Nanette R. Aleria hopes this activity paves the way for future marketing agreements between the FCAs and the institutional buyers.
“We wanted to provide a solution to one of the problems of our FCAs, which is the lack of market for their produce,” said Aleria.
Also joining the said meeting are representatives from the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division-10, who assisted the buyers and FCAs through market matching and roundtable discussions. (DA RFO-10)
