TACLOBAN CITY – The "Kadiwa - Locally Sourced: A Fresh Local Produce" fair has officially opened its doors to the public to celebrate Filipino Food Month. The event, which will run from April 19 to 22, 2023, is being held at the Second Level Activity Area of Robinsons North Tacloban in Abucay, Tacloban City.

The fair showcases the best local produce in the region, with around 15 farmer groups and entrepreneurs invited to participate. Visitors can expect to find a wide range of products, including fresh vegetables, fruits, spices, local delicacies, pastries, and frozen fish products, all at affordable prices.

The opening program was graced by the presence of RTD Larry U. Sultan, who emphasized the importance of the fair for local farmers and entrepreneurs to connect with a larger market and generate sales. 

Sultan, the Regional Technical Director for Operations of the Department of Agriculture (DA) Region VIII, praised the initiative and urged everyone to support the farmers and entrepreneurs who worked hard to make the event successful.

The event coincided with the 2023 High-Value Crops Week celebration, which has the theme "Green Revolution - Road to Importation." The High-Value Crops Development Program invited farmer leaders from Tacloban City and nearby municipalities to highlight the significance of the activity. 

A speaker shared insights and learnings from other countries successfully importing their agricultural products, emphasizing the importance of sustainable agriculture and responsible farming practices.

The fair offers a valuable platform for local farmers and entrepreneurs. Additionally, it encourages the consumption of fresh, locally sourced produce, which not only supports the local economy but also helps to minimize the food industry's carbon footprint. —iTacloban (Source: DA)
