The Technology and Livelihood Development Center in Negros Occidental earned P43,477 in three days of the Negros Island Organic Farmers Festival in Bacolod City recently, its sales report showed.
Menzi Joy Rojo, food sector in-charge, said TLDC is assisting small producers from Negros Occidental and the festival allowed them to sell more products from the local producers.
The best sellers during the festival were Minda’s banana chips and taro chips from Don Salvador Benedicto, Fritzie’s baked peanuts from San Carlos City, Grafil’s turmeric tea from Mabinay, E and J’s bandi from San Carlos City, Bern-Gies’ ginger brew from La Castellana, and Veloria’s squid rings from Sagay City.
Rojo said the percent of the total sales or P4,347.70 went to the province as provided in the tax code and the balance was given to the producers.
Other services offered at the TLDC are venue and equipment rentals, photocopying, and trainings on product packaging and labeling.*LTG
