Ifugao cooperative gets meat processing center from DAR

THE HAPAO Multi-Purpose Cooperative (HMPC) in Hungduan, Ifugao has received a processing center for the expansion of its meat production business, complemented by training on various aspects of business operations. The P300,000 processing facility, which was turned over late March, was funded under the Village Level Farm Focused Enterprise Development of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR). To further develop and standardize the cooperative’s products, the Department of Science and Technology provided a smoking chamber, a digital weighing scale, a stuffer, an upright freezer, a meat grinder, and an impulse sealer. The Department of Trade and Industry, meanwhile, organized a seminar on entrepreneurial skills. The HMPC is currently applying for a license from the Bureau of Food and Drugs, which will allow the cooperative to market its products outside Ifugao province.
