To promote a shift to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle, the 18th Bagsakan will feature food and health and wellness products from the CALABARZON Region. This is in harmony with the global trend to create healthier, more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive societies. Organic coconut products, special delicacies from the Southern Tagalog Region, and tikog bags from Samar will be on sale during the event. 

Over the past six months since the BDTP initiated the Bagsakan in March, 93 MSMEs, farmers, fruit growers, and cooperatives from eleven regions in the country namely, CAR, 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 5, 6, 8, 9 and NCR were assisted, generating total sales of almost Seven Million Pesos (Php 7 M).   In keeping with the DTI’s mandate to provide support for Filipino entrepreneurs, Bagsakan will soon have an online version with an e-commerce platform for fresh produce and chilled products.   

For complete information on the products, contact information, and payment options, product posters are published online via the DTI-BDTP Facebook. Like and follow BDTP on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube to get the latest news and updates.♦
