Philippines starts commercial okra exports to South Korea

Together with the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Philippine Okra Producers and Exporters Association (POPEA) started the commercial shipment of fresh okra to the Republic of Korea on June 6, 2021.

Agriculture Secretary William Dar and Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez showed the government’s full support to the private sector group led by Chairperson Roberto Amores. The country’s initial export of 1,200 kilograms of okra to Korea marks a milestone for local farmers and agri-entrepreneurs.

According to Amores, reorders are expected soon as promotions are aggressively pushed by the DTI and DA in Korea together with the private sector groups of POPEA, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc. (PHILEXPORT), and the Philippine Food Processors and Exporters Organization, Inc.
