Agriculture Secretary William Dar and Oriental Mindoro Governor Humerlito Dolor inspected the Calamansi Processing Facility located in Calapan, Oriental Mindoro on September 24, 2021.

The facility is a partnership of the SLC Primefood Corporation and the Naujan Farmers Association (NaFA) based in Oriental Mindoro. It is now commercially processing export-quality calamansi juice.

NaFA has at least 200 calamansi farmer-members from the different parts of the province. The Corporation, on the other hand, requires higher calamansi production to expand its operations.

“Let’s go big on calamansi,” Secretary Dar said.

He added that it is important to have the best quality planting material.
