Baguio City Representative Mark Go is eyeing the establishment of a canning facility in the Summer Capital.
The Baguio politiko is seeking the assistance of the Department of Science and Technology-Cordillera (DOST-CAR) in the proposed project.
Go explained that many Benguet farmers will benefit from the canning facility because it will help them sell their produce even during the rainy season.
“I have asked them if there is a possibility for the construction of a cannery or a food processing manufacturing for Benguet considering that we have many vegetables like mushrooms and asparagus which can be canned,” he said.
Go also said DOST can also provide training for farmers.
“We need a lot of training and funding for our people to do this,” he said.
