Bigasan ni Gloria active in North Leyte

by Gemma T. Tabao

Tacloban City (1 August) -- The Bigasan ni Gloria sa Palengke or BGP of the National Food Authority (NFA) is very active as ever in the different municipalities of Northern Leyte.

As of July this year, there are 26 BGP operators in the province mostly located in the public markets. Each operator is allocated NFA rice from 50 to 100 bags weekly which are being sold to end-users at P16.00 to P18.00 per kilo, a price very much lower than that of the commercial rice.

The Bigasan ni Gloria sa Palengke is a program of the national government through the NFA, aimed to ensure adequate and continuous supply of good quality and low-priced NFA rice during the lean months and in times of tight supply.

Based on the report gathered from the National Food Authority, the BGPs are operated by selected accredited NFA retailers and are strategically located inside the public market to give consumers assurance that they could buy rice anytime at an affordable price. These retailers are given an expanded rice allocation more than what is allocated to regular NFA retailers. However, the allocation will depend on the market price, the supply and demand situation, as well as the inventory level of the NFA rice.

Aside from Leyte, there are also existing BGPs operating in Marabut and Villareal, both of the Samar Island. (PIA-8) [top]
