P14 million regional food terminal to rise in Cebu City


CEBU – A P14-million regional food terminal will be built in Cebu City in the Philippines, officials have announced.

Department of Agriculture-7 (Central Visayas) Regional Director Lawyer Salvador Diputado and Mayor Edgardo Labella sign a memorandum of agreement on Wednesday.

The food hub will serve as a central storage and trading facility for fresh fruits, vegetables and seafood from farmers and fishermen.

“Through the food terminal, these market players can obtain agri-produce that are of quality and reasonable prices,” Diputado said in a statement released on Thursday (October 22).

Diputado said the terminal is one of four to be built across the Philippines.

“With this project, our farmers and fishers will have the opportunity to improve their income, while our consumers will enjoy a reasonable market price,” Diputado said. ICA/Expat Media
