The Technology and Livelihood Development Center generated last month, P47,601.65 in sales which is 1.42 percent lower than in August, its income report showed yesterday.
Menzi Joy Rojo, food sector in-charge, said August sales was P47,287.10 with most of it coming from consigned products displayed at the center.
Though there is a little decrease in sales, TLDC is expecting fluctuation in revenues because many of its customers are walk-in ones, she said. There are also times when customers will order in bulk, she added.
From the total revenues, 10 percent, or P4,760.16, goes to the province as provided in the tax code, and the remaining amount is given to producers, Rojo also said.
Other income generated by the center are from equipment rentals, photocopying, and training room rentals, she said.
Meanwhile, as of last month, the TLDC has been assisting 64 local producers from local government units and has provided them basic trainings in product packaging, marketing, and labeling.
Some of the products sold at the center are coco honey of Valladolid, muscovado sugar of Alter Trade, nata de coco of Toboso, oyster sauce of Hinigaran, herbal products like cinnamon capsule, herbal oils, and yacon juice, sambong capsule, mangosteen capsule. *LTG
