NFA assures Abrenios enough rice supply

by Maritess Beņas

Bangued, Abra (23 January) -- The National Food Authority (NFA) assured the Abrenios of adequate supply of rice in the province amidst warnings that El Niņo will strike the country this year.

NFA Manager Cecilia A. Concubierta said NFA has 82,000 bags of palay grains stocked in the eight bodegas in the province. She also assured that these palay grains will be milled right here in the province and outside like what happened in the past.

Aside from the existing palay grains on stock, there is also about 65,000 cavans of clean rice to be delivered in addition to the 40,000 cavans on hand.

Concubierta shared her observation that there is no more problem with rice supply in Abra even in the past years because the farmers have already learned to sell their palay to the government as well as buy rice from accredited NFA outlets like the Tindahan Natin and the Bagsakan Center in the barangays because the price of rice there are a lot cheaper than in other retailers.

NFA also maintains its Rolling Store, hence the allotment of the municipalities for rice are not affected especially in times of calamities.

The Food for School Program is also continuing since the allocation for this has already been in place. (PIA-Abra) [top]
