DAR, DTI Pushes For FDA Accreditation Of Farmers’ Products

news regional pix 1 nov. 6 2015The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) partnered with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in its efforts to help farmers produce quality products that would meet the safety standard of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The DAR and DTI recently conducted a three-day synchronization planning workshop in Palawan where participants from both agencies presented the current status of food safety and discussed issues and concerns of each agency.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Conrado Guevarra, said “the department deals with a lot of food products that are processed and produced by our agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs). Since these products are sold in the market, it is a must that they are guaranteed for consumption.”

“The quality of the products of our ARBs must cope-up with the highest standard in preparation for the ASEAn integration. That’s why the DAR and the DTI are joining hands to assist farmers’ organizations and eventually win the nod of the FDA for product licensing and accreditation,” Gevarra added.

“As development partners, we will facilitate trainer’s training for DAR and DTI technical staff so that they will be accredited as deputized food safety inspectors. Sooner or later, we can also include some staff of our local government units,” DTI Regional Director Joel B. Valera said.news regional pix 2 nov. 6 2015

DAR Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer Ferdinand De Gala emphasized the importancr of the activity to further strengthen convergence efforts among stakeholders. “We should see to it that all our efforts complement with each other in order to provide the needed support for our beneficiaries,” De Gala said.

The three-day planning workshop was done with the DTI-CARP partners. The DAR and the DTI agreed for the conduct of planning and threshing out issues and concerns every semester. (Gefelyn A. Goleng)
