PIA Press Release

We have technology for sugar cane juice business, says DOST

Negros Occ. (8 September) -- If all things go well, the province will have its first sugarcane juice sold in the market in the next few years.

Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region VI Assistant Regional Director for Technical Operations Emelyn Flores told PIA local entrepreneurs have already signified their interest to go into sugar cane juice business as details are now being discussed on its viability.

"We have the technology to do it," DOST Senior Science and Technology Research Specialist Ma. Elsa Falco said during the recent Visayas Technology Forum of the DOST-Technology Resource Center (TRC) held at the Sugarland Hotel.

If pushed through, the enterprise could emerge as the province' second major product derived from sugar cane next to bioethanol.

Falco, who lectured on fruit juice enterprise module, said the standard preparation for making fruit juices is also applicable in making sugar cane juice, with some modifications.

She allayed apprehensions participants raised on the difficulties of preparing the juice and pointed to the proven process the DOST has developed that delivered good results.

The venture combines the research of DOST with the technical assistance of the Technology Utilization and Commercialization Services Group-TRC in the form of hardware investment.

Other DOST-generated technologies available for investors discussed in the activity include coco coir machines, vacuum frying and smoked fish production.

Falco said some Asians who learned the vacuum frying technology from DOST are now importing their products to the Philippines. (PIA-LOL) [top]
