Bacolod NFA assures, ensures ready rice supply

Negros Occidental (4 February) -- Amidst the global economic crunch, the National Food Authority Negros Occidental is continuing its commitment to protect the interest of the stakeholders and the consuming public by fulfilling its mandate of ensuring food security and stabilization of rice supply and prices.

NFA Negros Occidental Provincial Manager Pablito G. Gemarino said the local NFA sold last year 908,007 bags of NFA rice through the 574 NFA accredited market outlets such as Tindahan Natin outlets (TN), Bigasan ng Palengke (BSP), and Tindahan sa Parokya (TSP) outlets.

This volume is 25 percent higher compared to 2007's rice distribution of 726,786 bags. NFA sells rice to TN outlets at P18.25/ kg and P25/kg to Bigasan sa Palengle and Tindahan sa Parokya outlets, while average price of commercial rice last year reached to as high as P37/kg-P39/kg during the lean months from April-July.

Gemarino said that a total of 880,435 bags of rice was received by the province last year. Ninety four percent or 825,491 bags came from Vietnam and Thailand and 54,944 bags from Iloilo and Batangas.

Under the NFA and the Department of Education, the Food for School Program some 21,053 bags of NFA rice was released last year to 37,520 schoolchildren from 402 different elementary schools in the province and 12494 bags for pre-schoolers under the NFA/ DSWD. (NFA/PIA/EAD) [top]
