NFA rice now available in supermarkets in QC
State-run grains agency National Food Authority (NFA) said the public can now buy NFA rice at P27 and P32 per kilogram in two supermarkets in Quezon City.
These stores are Daily Supermarket along P. Tuazon corner 20th Avenue in Quezon City and San Roque Supermarket in Quirino Highway corner Dumalay St. in Novaliches, Quezon City.
To recall, NFA signed last week a tripartite memorandum of agreement with the Department of Trade Industry (DTI) and the Philippine Amalgamated Supermarkets Association, Inc. (PAGASA) for members of PAGASA to sell NFA rice in addition to the existing accredited outlets in public markets.
Right now, NFA district offices in Metro Manila have started accepting applications for license to sell NFA rice from member-supermarkets of PAGASA.
Each supermarket is allotted 50 bags of NFA rice sold at either P27 or P32 per kilogram.
