CapSU-Pontevedra Campus Administrator Dr. Mae D. Dumapig and CapSU President Dr. Editha C. Alfon receive the Usufruct Agreement from DTI VI Regional Director Rebecca M. Rascon, represented by DTI-6 STIDS and SSF Regional Focal Person Aurora Teresa J. Alisen and DTI Capiz Provincial Office OIC Ken Queenie R. Cuñada during the launching of the SSF on Dairy Milk Processing at the CapSU-Pontevedra Campus on 21 May.

It all started from a business plan where students envisioned of having a dairy processing project at the Capiz State University (CapSU)–Pontevedra Campus. Now that aspiration is becoming a reality with government’s shared service facility (SSF) project being facilitated by the DTI.

CapSU – Pontevedra Campus is a beneficiary of the SSF for Dairy Milk Processing.

“One of the projects that the students proposed was on the dairy processing project. We submitted the proposal to the DTI. The proposal was chosen, evaluated and was approved,” recalled CapSU – Pontevedra Campus Administrator Mae D. Dumapig

Dumapig said that they used to have a dairy processing before but the number of milk-producing cows has declined. Recently, however, the National Dairy Authority granted them a loan to enable them to acquire milk-producing cows and revive their dairy projects.

CapSU and DTI officials are joined by the stakeholders and municipal officials.

“This SSF Project is a big help to the community. We can help the farmers and the students as well,” she said. The school offers agriculture courses, and dairy processing is part of the curriculum.

The university received several equipment for the operation of the facility which include mobile milking machines, milk cans, milk pasteurizer, freezer, chiller, infrared tableware stabilizer, milk fat analyser, and manual sealing machine, among others.

The total project cost is P960,000.00.

Establishments with the bronze seal have complied with Fair Trade Laws (FTLs), among them the Consumer Act, Price Act, Price Tag and effective customer relations services and efficient store management operations.

Establishments with the silver seal, on the other hand, have passed additional criteria, such as exemplification of social commitment and responsibility, for instance involvement in any regular corporate social responsibility programs.

Companies with the gold seal have passed additional criterion -- the establishment of quality orientation management.

Director Caberte said that the DTI is encouraging more establishments to apply for the Bagwis Seal of Excellence Award to safeguard interests of consumers and foster fair business practices.

According to Caberte, the Bagwis Award shall be valid for three (3) years from date of conferment.
