The facility, awarded to the San Jose Workers Multipurpose Cooperative, will usher in the transformation of San Jose into an agricultural-technology city benefitting farms, hog raisers, and egg producers alike.

The local government led by its Mayor Valentino Patron thanked Secretary Dar for pouring investments in San Jose to ensure a productive agri sector.

In return, he committed to continue to support the programs of the national government to attain a food secure and resilient Philippines. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
