Cavite sets P5 million for coffee farm development

by Ruel B. Francisco

Trece Martirez City (9 November) -- To attract potential private individuals into coffee growing business and continue the trade of the commodity, the provincial government earmarked an initial funding of Php 5 million for the development of close to 1,200 hectares of coffee plantation under the so called "Adopt-a-Coffee Farm "program in the upland areas of the province.

In the recent 3rd National Coffee Summit, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla explained the program of the provincial government to save the coffee industry by attracting retirees in investing at coffee plantation.

"The purchase of land is not necessary, and landowners are willing to lease it for retirees to continue the trade," Remulla said.

The concept of the program originated in the town of Amadeo three years ago by allowing private individuals to lease and operate coffee farmlands at an annual rate of Php 10,000 per hectare.

Governor Remulla said the program will be launched in the towns of Amadeo, Alfonso, Indang and Bailen (Emilio Aguinaldo) as soon as the framework is already in place, adding that he want to create a coffee lifestyle among retirees and young businessmen to ensure that the coffee industry will continue to proper.
