• Safety standard upgrades


    Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala recently told members of the Joint Foreign Chambers that the Philippine government is currently upgrading food safety and quality standards in sync with global benchmarks to make local agribusiness more competitive in foreign markets. The DA plans to open 17 trading centers this year, in addition to the four launched in 2014. Along with the trading centers, the DA will establish processing plants and laboratory facilities to reduce losses, increase farm produce value, and ensure safety of the vegetables traded in the area.
