Agri Dept claims it is seeking institutional buyers for locally-grown garlic

The Filipino Department of Agriculture has stated that it is speaking with traders and other potential institutional buyers to encourage them to get domestic garlic from local Filipino farmers. This comes after farmers in Batanes and Occidental Mindoro expressed concerns about the oversupply of garlic in their areas, despite them already being sold cheaply.

“We will encourage mobile biyaheros and more traders to buy from our farmers from the region and sell here in Metro Manila,” said Undersecretary Kristine Evangelista, noting that the department already buys garlic from farmers and sells them at affordable prices.
