Kalinga food processors apply for BFAD registration

by Larry Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (4 June) -- Micro-entrepreneurs in the province engaged in the production of vege-noodles, ground coffee powder and fruit wine will apply for registration with the Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD).

Aurora Sanet of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) provincial office said food processors from Rizal, Pasil and Pinukpuk underwent orientation by BFAD representatives here last week.

Sanet explained BFAD mark on a product guarantees its safety for human consumption and would add to its marketability.

Registration to BFAD has technical and product specification requirements. Under technical requirement, product should have technical employees, present list of equipments, quality control facilities and procedures, flow chart of manufacturing process, description of manufacturing procedures and certification of current laboratory tests.

Under product specification, the product should indicate product information that contains its ingredients, technical specification of finished product and justification of label claim.

Sanet said these requirements would assure the finished products out in the market for sale are free from any form of contamination.

BFAD regulation also checks the kind of material used in the packaging for a specific kind of food product. This way, any chemical reaction is avoided, Sanet said.

Sanet said BFAD representatives expressed willingness to come over to assist food processors comply with the requirements. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
