Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance

 

  1. Market Information – Provision of timely and reliable market information and analysis to agribusiness stakeholders. Updated data on prices along the value chain of basic agricultural commodities are regularly gathered and consolidated. Periodic updates and analyses on prices, volume, supply and demand are published in official websites and disseminated to stakeholders to provide insights on trends and factors affecting the agricultural marketing system to help market players make informed business decisions. Market research of Philippine agricultural products are undertaken to identify new local and international markets. The insights serve as guide to planners, producers and processors in crafting market development strategies in expanding their markets.
  2. Market Linkage and Product Promotion – Facilitation of linkages of farmers and fisherfolk enterprises (FFEs) and other agri-based MSMEs with consumer markets and institutional buyers. In collaboration with the private sector, LGUs and other government offices, AMAS organizes and supports local product promotion events as well as supports and participates in international promotion events showcasing Philippine export products in collaboration with other export promotion agencies.
  3. Agribusiness Promotion – Information on agribusiness investment opportunities are packaged and disseminated to stakeholders. In collaboration with the private sector, investment promotion agencies and LGUs, AMAS organizes and supports agribusiness investment promotion activities and events to attract private sector investments in agriculture and agribusiness in the respective LGU localities.
  4. Agribusiness Development Services – AMAS maintains the registry data base of Farmers and Fisherfolk Enterprises (FFEs) and agri-based MSMEs and provides business development services to FFEs and agri-based MSMEs.
