Author: DA Communications Group | 23 July 2021

Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the inauguration and opening of the Narvacan Trading Post-Warehouse in Barangay Margaay on July 23, 2021.

The warehouse, established under the Bayanihan 2 project, aims to provide an area for the consolidation of agricultural commodities produced by members of the Nueva Segovia Cooperative Consortium (NSCC).

According to the Secretary, the P5 million facility will contribute immensely to the success of the food quadrants being developed by the Department of Agriculture (DA) for the benefit of the consumers from Metro Manila.

“We will be establishing hubs in Taguig, Valenzuela, Quezon City, and Parañaque to cater to the residents of East South, Central, Southeast, and Northeast Metro Manila,” he said.

In his message, the agri chief urged the NSCC to continue to elevate their game as a cooperative to increase the number of farmer-beneficiaries and provide the consuming public quality produce at affordable prices. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
