DOST PROGRAM LIFTS AGRI-CO-OP FROM RUINS OF ‘YOLANDA’
MOTIVATED AND DETERMINED, a group of women belonging to the Ormoc Uphill Agri-Processors Association managed to revive their business venture after their project suffered a setback when super typhoon Yolanda struck Leyte in 2013. The coop processes pineapple marmalade, and produces a special kind of piña torta. They have learned that by mixing six kilograms of fresh pineapple with two kilograms of sugar and the right amount of calamansi juice results in very nice tasting marmalade.
Pineapple marmalade produced by the Ormoc Uphill Agri-Processors Association.
