More Kadiwa Outlets And Mobile Stores Will Be Rolled Out, Says Department of Agriculture
The DA hopes to provide affordable and nutritious food to everyone.
In a post on the Department of Agriculture website, the DA announced that it will set up more 'Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita' outlets to serve more consumers in Metro Manila.
A Kadiwa outlet was launched last week in Quezon City which offers fresh vegetables and seafood products that are at least 20 percent cheaper than those sold at public markets. According to the report, additional Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita outlets will be set up near Elliptical Road in Quezon City soon.
"We have engaged Pateros, Quezon City, Caloocan, Taguig, and Pasig in the services of Kadiwa on Wheels. The number is growing and in the next weeks, we expect more orders from other LGUs in metropolitan areas," said DA assistant secretary for agribusiness Kristine Evangelista.
The Department of Agriculture aims to bring 10 to 12 metric tons of fresh produce to sustain the Kadiwa operations in Manila. The Kadiwa stall in DA-ATI is open weekly every Thursday to Saturday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the stall in Cainta is open every Friday to Sunday, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
