Dominican Republic to increase local production of potatoes for industrial use

President Luis Abinader attended the signing of an inter-institutional agreement between the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and MSMEs (MICM), the Agricultural Bank (Bagricola), and the PepsiCo company (Frito Lay Dominicana ), to support the growth and empowerment of potato farmers in the municipality of San Juan de la Maguana and Constanza.

The agreement establishes a public-private partnership between PepsiCo and the government of the Dominican Republic that will seek to increase local potato production from 7,200 tons (2021) to 14,400 tons (2025).

This agreement and the commercial relations established with the farmers are strictly by the global standards of the PepsiCo company’s Sustainable Agriculture Program, which will be implemented in close collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agricultural Bank, and the Ministry of Industry.
