AMAD to assist performance of Barangay Food Terminals in Davao Region

DAVAO CITY, Jan. 21 -- The Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) of the Department of Agriculture will be conducting productivity performance evaluation to each Barangay Food Terminal installed to identify the productivity of each BFT in Davao Region,

Davao BFT Focal Person Assistant Arquillo Villahermosa said each BFT will be evaluated based on the fulfillment of the project objectives which include significant daily sales and if it continuously helps the producer as well as the consumers in the area. He added that the management of all BFT with high productivity performance will be turned over to the Local Government Unit concerns.

BFTs are Barangay-based food depot and distribution system which offer affordable, safe and quality wage food products like meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and fruits. This system directly links farmers and fisherfolk producers to the consumers which benefit them both. These were managed by LGU, private cooperatives, or legitimate registered Association in the area.

Villahermosa said with these BFTs farmers and fisherfolk are no longer worry where to bring their products because BFT answers it. He added that with BFTs fair market price for the farmers’ harvest is assured.

Villahermosa said the Department of Agriculture in Davao region already installed a total of 90 BFTs or Barangay Bagsakan including Bagsakan Centers amount to P200,000 each. Apart from the equipment, DA also conducted trainings on how to manage the project to the beneficiaries to equip them. He added that the evaluation will be done together with the Commission on Audit (COA) for proper recommendation.

He said those BFTs which are performing low will either be retrieve or be subject to rehabilitation and further assistance. (EGDeligero/Aggie Media Service)
