NFA distributes 7,000 bags of rice to Capiz outlets

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (18 September) -- More than 7,000 bags of government rice were already distributed in accredited rice outlets in Capiz this September alone.

Information Officer Edna Artates disclosed that from September 1 to 17, the National Food Authority (NFA) in Capiz was able to distribute 7,184 bags of NFA rice in the different Tindahan Natin, Bigasan ng Bayan, farmer's cooperatives and other accredited rice outlets.

Artates said that from January to September 17, the food agency here has flooded 146,916 NFA rice in said rice outlets.

NFA Deputy Administrator Ludovico Jarina stressed that the NFA has increased by 25 to 50 percent rice deliveries to its 31,400 outlets nationwide to soften the impact of the high prices of commercial rice on the public.

Jarina also assured the public that the government rice remains at P18.00 per kilogram despite the price increase of commercial rice up to P26.00 to P27.00 per kilogram.

According to Jarina, aside from the regular NFA outlets and Tindahan Natin that have been established to support the President's hunger mitigation program, 197 NFA rolling stores also make three regular trips a week to depressed areas of the country to sell rice.

Meanwhile Artates said that they were able to apprehend and penalize 25 rice retailers in the province for non-display of tag price as well as for over pricing government rice.

As of September 17, the Capiz NFA's rice inventory accounts 29,697 bags, Artates said. (PIA) [top]
