Beyond Buzzwords: Transforming Philippine Agriculture!

2nd Rice Caravan

Author: DA Communications Group | 8 April 2020

Agriculture Secretary William Dar advises consumers and local government units (LGUs) to continue with their usual trade and only buy food supply that would be enough for their weekly requirements to maintain balance in the food supply chain.

During the National Food Authority’s (NFA) 2nd Rice Caravan on April 7, Secretary Dar reiterated that the country has enough supply of basic food commodities such as rice, meat, fish, and vegetables.

He said the Department of Agriculture (DA) appreciates the initiatives of LGUs in procuring directly from their farmers various food products for their constituents but suggests that they limit their procurement of rice in particular to what is required by the locality.
