PIA Press Release

14.5-M Filipinos benefit from Tindahan Natin outlets

Iloilo City (22 December) -- Some 14.5 million Filipinos have benefited from the Tindahan Natin outlets established nationwide.

its year-end report, the DA said it has already set up around 14,585 Tindahan Natin outlets nationwide as of December 15, 2008.

The Tindahan Natin outlets which sell basic food items like rice noodles at prices lower than those in regular retail outlets are part of the government's efforts to reduce hunger and poverty amongst the poorest of the poor.

To further ensure the sufficient supply and stable prices of goods, the DA has also established "bagsakan" centers or drop-off centers where farmers and fishermen can directly sell their produce to seller without going through middlemen.

The same year-end report showed that 189 barangay bagsakan or food terminal and 37 bagsakan centers or drop-off points for agricultural goods have been set-up during the same period.

Some 397, 683 families have benefited from the barangay bagsakans set up in Metro Manila while 583,690 households from bagsakan centers established in the metropolis and the regions.

DA also reported that regular dialogues are held with industry leaders to find ways on how to pull down the costs of prime commodities as part of its efforts to keep prices of basic goods within the reach of Filipino consumers.

For instance, according to DA, it convinced major players in the hog industry to pull down the cost of prime pork cuts ahead of the Christmas season by agreeing on a "reference price" ranging from P140 to P150 per kilo of choice cuts like pigue, kasim and liempo. (PIA) [top]
