DAR turns over P17.8-million marketing center to Bohol farmers

news reg 1 pix 1 sept. 29 2016The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has recently turned over a P17,885,661 Provincial Agrarian Reform Information and Marketing Center (AIM-C) in the province of Bohol to serve as marketing arm of farmers’ cooperatives to boost the farmer-beneficiaries’ agricultural products and income. 

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARPO) Grace Fua said the AIM-C, located beside the Diwa Partylist Center near the Hall of Justice in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, is the farmer’s one stop market and training center.

“The DAR identified the Bohol Federation of Agrarian Reform Communities Cooperative (BFARCCO) to run and manage this AIM-C building. Its early operation is doing well expecting a boost in the marketing of the farmer-beneficiaries’ agricultural products,” Fua said.

Engr. Abundio Nuez, the Chairman of the BFARCCO said that as of now there are 20 cooperatives from the Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) under the BFARCCO who can store and market their farm products at the center. BFARCCO has partners and marketing outlets like KOICA, BODARE MPC, Mission Trading, Panda Tea, and the DAR personnel, among others.

Some agencies like the Department of Agriculture and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) are instrumental to the marketing and enhancement of the label and packaging of Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) products.

DAR Regional Director Alejandro Otacan said the AIM-C is a Japan-funded project under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP III) with a counterpart fund amounting to P3,897,913. The provincial government, through Governor Edgar Chatto, approved a 15 year usufruct agreement of the lot where the building is located.

“I am confident that the support of the local government units, partner in development and progress, and the capability of BFARCCO will be able to achieve its purpose, successful operation and boost farmers’ income,” Otacan said.

Mayor John Geesnel Yap of the City of Tagbilaran through the Strengthening Urban Resilience for Growth and Equity or SURGE expressed commitment to support the BFARCCO.

Governor Chatto, on the other hand, expressed his gratitude for the new development as it is in tandem with the poverty alleviation program of Bohol. (Gay Visitation/Ma. Lydia Bantugan)
