Ambaguio, Nueva Vizcaya — The stride towards promoting food safety and creating a safe working environment for market vendors and food processors continues as Team DTI R2 Nueva Vizcaya led by Provincial Director Atty. Michael B. Paggabao rolled out Project SAFE (Strengthening Advocacy on Food Safety Enhancement) in Ambaguio, Nueva Vizcaya on 25 June 2024.

Now in its fourth run, DTI through Project SAFE provided the Tiblac Farmers Agriculture Cooperative with 15 sets of heavy-duty rubberized aprons and gloves. The aprons were designed to protect coffee processors and ensure that food products meet stringent safety standards.

The initiative is part of the broader efforts of the agency to elevate food safety standards and enhance the competitiveness of local enterprises. With the continuous rollout of Project SAFE, more vendors and food processors are expected to benefit, ensuring that every bite is as safe as it is delicious.

Stay tuned for more updates as Project SAFE continues to impact Nueva Vizcaya, bringing safety and quality to the forefront of the local food industry. ♦
