DA-9’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division

Philippines: AMAD helps to market onions from Occidental Mindoro

The Department of Agriculture in the Zamboanga Peninsula (DA-9) has joined hands with a farmers’ group in Occidental Mindoro province to market their red onions in the region at a cheaper price. The marketing linkage was forged Thursday between the DA-9 AMAD and the Contoroy Bato Singit Irrigators Farmers Association, Inc. (CBSIFAI) in Occidental Mindoro.

“We assist them in marketing their products and at the same time to offer onions to the local buying public at a cheaper price,” said Marissa Mohammad, DA-9’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) chief, in a recent interview. “Their initial destination is Cebu City, but they decided to move to Zamboanga City after they failed to agree as to the selling price of onions.”

The CBSIFAI is selling red onions at PHP100 a kilo, which is cheaper by PHP30 compared to the prevailing price at the local market of PHP130 per kilo. The previous prevailing price of red onions at the local market was PHP600 a kilo.

[ PHP100 = €1.70 ]
