Pangilinan said under the program beneficiaries development (PBD) of the DAR, the farmers were introduced and trained on red chili production. She said the DAR linked the farmers to potential buyer of their chilies.

“We have linked them to Nutri Asia, a company that produces various chili sauces. Currently, our farmers are selling their red chilies to this company,” said Pangilinan.
