Philippine Harvest Agri Food Fair this weekend at Central Square
Mark your calendars this weekend to check out the best of the best at the Philippine Harvest, an Organic, Artisanal, Natural and Indigenous Agri Food Fair which will be held at Central Square, BGC.
The event, which will start on May 27 and end on the 29th, seeks to showcase the richness of Philippine agriculture in partnership with 30 exhibitors from various regions of the country involved in the coconut, adlai, heirloom rice, organic colored rice, artisanal chocolates, dairy products, honey, cacao, coffee, tabon-tabon, sua, and organic meatindustries.
“This event will be an opportunity for us to meet some of our farmers, processors, and retailers of premium organic, natural, and indigenous products that reflect our culinary culture which is at par with international standards,” DA Undersecretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, Undersecretary for Special Concerns, and Chair of the National Organic Agricultural Board (NOAB) said.
The event, spearheaded by the Department of Agriculture and supported by SSI Group Inc., is seen as a means to bring local products to a wider market and expand their potentials for distribution. (By: Angel Ong)
