KADIWA on Wheels project brings farmers’ fresh produce closer to consumers
IMUS CITY, Cavite Sep 9 (PIA) — The Department of Agriculture (DA) Region 4A (CALABARZON) recently rolled out it’s KAtuwang sa DIwa at GaWA (KADIWA) ni Ani at Kita Project on Wheels at Unioil Anabu 1 and Unioil Anabu 2.
The project is a partnership between DA, the Department of Energy (DOE) and Unioil that aims to bring farmers’ fresh farm produce closer to the consumers at a cheaper cost since no middle men or traders are involved in the wholesale of fresh farm products.
“With the help of DA, we are able to consolidate and sell farm products from across the region even from places which remain in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Raffy Aromin said.
Aromin is the chairman of the Samahan ng Galing Ulan at Lupa Ating Yamanin (SAGULAY) Farmers Association, one of the beneficiaries of the project.
The KADIWA on Wheels serves as a venue to promote and exhibit the farmers’ fresh and quality produce to help them earn more to support their livelihood amid the on-going pandemic.
This activity will run every Saturdays and Sundays of September with fresh harvested quality products of the participating groups like the SAGULAY Farmers Association and other farmers groups in CALABARZON on sale. (Ruel Francisco/DA-4A RAFIS)
