DOST approves proposal to improve wine industry in Kalinga

Tabuk City (15 May) -- The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) approved a proposal seeking to improve the local wine industry in the province.

DOST Provincial Officer Alfonso Berto said DOST central office has approved the P200,000.00 upgrading of the fruit wine processing managed by Nancy Busacay of Dagupan West, here.

Berto said the DOST will assist in packaging, design and labeling of the product including the provision of a fermentation kit to improve the quality of fruit wine extracted from Bugnay fruit tree.

"The processing equipment which is expected to be given in June also helps measure the alcohol, acid and sugar content of the product," Berto said.

Recently, DOST in cooperation with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) also gave a new fermentation kit to the Mananig Bugnay Fruit wine industry.

Based on test results conducted by DOST using the new fermentation kit, the Mananig Bugnay Fruit Wine is stable and has passed the requirements to qualify as a wine product.

DTI Specialist Jeffrey Pasikan said based on results conducted last March, the FPD-ITDI confirmed that the acid, alcohol and sugar contents are stable.

Gearing towards mechanizing the winery industry in the province, Pasikan said that Mananig group is close to completing its winery equipments.

Berto said that wine which is 16% or less alcohol content is not classified as liquor. "The local wine industry should be exempted from the liquor ban imposed by some barangays," he said. (PIA) [top]
