CCPC in Camarines Norte now fully operational

by RB Manlangit

Daet, Camarines Norte (2 February) -- The Coco-Coir Production Center here is now on its full operation in buying coconut husks and production of coco fiber.

This was bared by Angie Villagracia of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and concurrent President of the Camarines Norte Alay Lakad Foundation, Inc. (CNALFI) during the meeting held here over the weekend.

Villagracia said the operation has started last December wherein the project team already started buying coconut husks in Labo, Daet and San Lorenzo Ruiz and also started producing coconut fiber.

It can be recalled that the proponent of the project is the CNALFI and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) as the collaborating agency

The project was funded by a grant by the U.S. Department of Labor thru the ABK Initiative-World Vision Development Foundation.

The Joboken Enterprise will buy the said coconut fiber. The coco fiber of the discarded nuts' husk will be made into coconut twine, which in turn can be manufactured into doormats, brushes, ropes, and upholstery materials.

The coconut twine has much bigger demand both in domestic and foreign markets and can be used for erosion control nets for extreme slopes.

The objective of the project is to help reduce the incidence of child labor in the province wherein target beneficiaries are organized parents' association in areas covered by the ABK initiative as primary and secondary beneficiaries are the coconut farmers Agrarian Reform beneficiaries and the organized women association in the province.
