Sen. Cynthia Villar urged the public to patronize the country’s local products which in turn will help build a strong economy.
She made the remark during the Association of Laguna Food Processors’ (ALAFOP) Calabarzon Food Solutions Hub (CFoSH) in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, where she encouraged everyone to patronize the one-stop shop for Laguna’s local products.
The senator also asked to support small businesses and the Association of Laguna Food Processors (ALAFOP).
She acknowledged ALAFOP for creating a group of processed food manufacturers in order to strengthen their forces.
Currently, they have 79 members since it was created in 2009 with only 12 members.
“They intend to give jobs and additional income to our people in Laguna,” said Villar.
They have coconut virgin oil, coconut sugar, mulberry wine, mulberry jam, mulberry juice, coconut skim milk, lemongrass hydrosol, lemongrass oil, Filipino snacks at deserts, and turmeric beverages at turmeric powder.
“The products of members of Market MSMEs should be accessible to more and bigger markets,” she further stated.
