In partnership with the Atkins Import and Export Resources Inc. and the MyOwn Group of Companies, Agriculture Secretary William Dar and DTI Undersecretary Ruth Castelo launched the PRD Program at the Marikina Riverbanks Center Pop-Up Store to provide consumers access to low-cost frozen meat products.

Affordable frozen pork and chicken products under the PRD Program are also available in all Robinsons Supermarket branches in Metro Manila after the program was launched at Robinsons Supermarket Galleria on July 29, 2021.
