CAGAYAN VALLEY —Days after the reported oversupply of tomatoes in Region 2, DTI R2, through its “Walang Sayang Project,” extended assistance to the Department of Agriculture Region 2 to help multiple farmers with their oversupply of tomatoes.

The Marketing Unit of the DTI R2-SME Development Division facilitated the order taking on February 2, with a total of 192 kilograms of tomatoes sold.

“Walang Sayang Project” is an initiative of the agency that aims to help farmers and agri-MSMEs in the Cagayan Valley market their produce and lessen the wastage of commodities due to oversupply. This also links local agricultural producers from the region to institutional buyers and big industry players in the National Capital Region and other areas.

We call on traders, retailers, and processors to help move more tons of tomatoes. For orders, you may reach out directly to DA R02. The price is only P15 per kilogram.
