The Province of Batangas received P272.5 million worth of interventions from the Department of Agriculture (DA) to scale up its agriculture sector that has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the African swine fever virus.

During a visit to Batangas on August 28, Agriculture Secretary William Dar inspected the DA’s triple “A” slaughterhouse project at Tanauan City and the egg processing and chicken manure composting facilities at the “Egg Basket” town of San Jose. He also visited the Tanauan City’s Trading Center, which is located near the newly constructed slaughterhouse.

In San Jose, which is a major livestock and poultry producing town, he visited the town’s Batangas Egg Producers’ Cooperative (BEPCO). The funding for the Tanauan Trading Post will help improve food supply logistics in the province and other parts of the region. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
