Business World - - The Nation -

Goods from at least 30 farm­ers and fish­er­men’s or­ga­ni­za­tions around the coun­try will be avail­able, di­rect from the pro­duc­ers and at farm gate prices, here at the Taguig Lakeshore Hall in Lower Bi­cu­tan on Satur­day, Oct. 13 as part of the Depart­ment of Agriculture’s (DA) rov­ing TienDA Malasakit Store. In a so­cial me­dia post, Agriculture Sec­re­tary Em­manuel F. Piñol said this would be the big­gest TienDA so far with prod­ucts such as tuna from Gen­eral San­tos City, ban­gus from Pan­gasi­nan, fruits and veg­eta­bles from Min­danao, and toma­toes from La­guna, where farm­ers re­cently lost money as they had to dis­pose tons of un­sold har­vest. Mr. Piñol said af­ter this part­ner­ship with the Taguig City gov­ern­ment and ear­lier with Muntinlupa, the DA aims to bring the TienDA to other parts of Metro Manila.
