Japan proposes solar-powered cold storage facility in Philippines

The Japan Agricultural Exchange Council (JAEC) is proposing to put up a cold storage facility in the Philippines to improve vegetable production in the country. In a statement, Department of Agriculture officials said Agriculture Secretary William Dar and delegates from the JAEC have met, discussing the status of the latter’s proposed Safe Vegetable Production with Marketing Technology Improvement project in the Philippines.

The Agriculture department said JAEC’s proposal include the construction of a cold storage solar-powered facility in Buguias, Benguet, as well as the purchase of refrigerated cooling trucks, to improve post-harvest handling, storage, and delivery of Filipino farmers’ produce.

The proposed P82-million project will be funded by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is currently under the review of the National Economic and Development Authority.
