PIA Press Release

Let us help label your products, DOST tells Aklanon entrepreneurs

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (11 June) -- The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) called on Aklan entrepreneurs who are producing various products to make them more competent, marketable and attractive by availing of labeling and packaging assistance offered by the government agency.

Jairus Lachica, Provincial Head of the DOST here said interested entrepreneurs could just go directly to their office for labeling or packaging assistance.

"The DOST will design a label or packaging for free, and once the entrepreneur has selected what he/she likes, the agency will provide him or her P5,000.00 for the printing of the label or packaging," Lachica said.

Lachica further said that if the label or packaging makes the product click in the market, then the next batch of label/packaging production could be managed already by the entrepreneur.

Besides labeling and packaging design services, DOST also offers various trainings to interested parties.

This month, Lachica said the DOST will conduct a training on mushroom spawn making. He said this only the first phase of the training, and called on those interested to register early, as they will only accept ten participants. The training will be held at the DOST Provincial Office.

Lachica also reiterated the DOST's program on innovative system assistance, which involves the provision of financial assistance to entrepreneurs and businessmen who wish to improve their products or increase their production. Under this program, entrepreneurs/businessmen could be given financial assistance by the DOST to purchase equipment and other needs of their business, which they will pay in a given time with no interest.

"Just apply at the DOST," Lachica said. (PIA) [top]
