DIRECT MARKETING STRATEGY
FOR MEAT, FISH 
LAUNCHED OCT. 28
By Manny Piñol
Secretary of Agriculture



Just like in the rice industry where traders and middlemen control the buying and selling price, meat, poultry and fish products are also bought low from the farmers and sold at very high prices in the market.

The perfect example is the broiler chicken whose farm gate price plummeted from P70 per kilo to only P15 because of the Bird Flu Outbreak in Central Luzon.

Today, while the Avian Influenza problem has been fully addressed, farm gate prices of broiler are still between P30 to P40 per kilo while the selling price of dressed chicken in the market is between P120 to 130 per kilo.

It is obvious and clear who makes the killing and raking in the big profit.

On Oct. 28, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries will launch its first direct intervention in ensuring that farmers' get the fair price for their products and consumers are given access to affordable food items.

Dumangas, Iloilo - Oyster farmers, small fisher folks and fishpond owners in this sea resource-rich town of Iloilo Province have opposed the establishment of a fuel depot in its coast close to the fishponds and oyster farms saying a calamity like an earthquake could result in the devastation of their livelihood.

In a forum held in a Bangus Hatchery owned by Iloilo Fishers Association President Baby Hautea, the oyster farmers and fisher folks led by their barangay officials expressed vehement opposition to the plan of an oil company to establish a fuel depot in the area.
