Baguio City Representative Mark Go said he is looking for investors who will help establish a canning facility in the Summer Capital.
The Baguio politiko said Benguet farmers will greatly benefit in the preserving their produce.
He explained that farmers can earn during the rainy season because they will have canned products to sell.
“If we have Filipino investors that would like to enter this, then what we need is to give them that chance for us to help our farmers and consumers,” Go said.
“There may be investor that would want to invest in this while the DOST can provide technical support in ensuring that this will be done in the Cordillera,” he added.
Go also said canning helps preserve vegetables’ nutrients.
