Quezon, the Philippines

San Miguel Crop. opens regional food hub for farmers

San Miguel Corp. has formally inaugurated the San Miguel Market, one of the key components of its relocation model that provides at-risk and displaced fisherfolk families in Sariaya, Quezon disaster-resilient homes, a safe community complete with amenities and facilities to support their livelihood.

The San Miguel Market, a public market built by SMC for fisherfolk beneficiary families of its San Miguel-Christian Gayeta homes, should become part of a larger food supply hub in the province, where both fishermen and farmers can sell their produce to bulk buyers from all over Quezon province, neighboring provinces, as well as from Metro Manila.

SMC President Ramon S. Ang: “With the San Miguel Market, farmers and fisherfolk who reside at our sustainable housing community, those in neighboring areas and barangays, now have their very own marketplace nearby, where they can sell their goods without spending much to transport these to other markets. This means more income in their pockets for their families and, for customers, more affordable food choices.”

In recent months, Ang said the company has taken steps to address farmers’ loss of income and ensuring stable food supply by ramping up purchases of corn and cassava used in many of the company’s products while putting up traditional and non-traditional markets where more food can be accessed by consumers at affordable prices.
