Davao City – Mindanao, the land of abundant fruits will share its harvest to the people of Baguio this weekend. As a priority project of Sec. Emmanuel Piñol as chairman of Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) to improve productivity and reduce poverty, fruits farmers will now have opportunities to explore greater markets of their yield.
During bounty harvests, fruit market price dives due to abundant supply affecting income of the farmers. New and bigger markets will address this.
Dubbed as “Mindanao Fruit Festival in Baguio’, the fruit festival initiated by the MinDA aims to showcase the variety of Mindanao harvests for the consumers of Baguio to enjoy at reasonable price. Participating firms are expected to earn from this because of reduced middlemen.
Fruits to be sold are lanzones, marang, durian, mangosteen , rambutan primarily coming from the Davao Region and nearby provinces. The festival will happen this weekend, August 24-25, 2019.
