Calapan City Mayor Panaligan visits dairy cooperative in Bansud
Calapan City Mayor Arnan C. Panaligan has visited the Mindoro Dairy Cooperative in Brgy. Salcedo, Bansud.
The said cooperative is a processing facility for fresh carabao milk.
“Ang Mindoro Dairy Cooperative ay nagproproseso ng sariwang gatas ng kalabaw na sinusuplay nila sa Department of Education bilang bahagi ng milk feeding program,” Panaligan’s office said.
“Ang milk processing facility ay naitayo sa pamamagitan ng pondo mula sa Philippine Carabao Center,” it added.
The mayor said that a law must be passed in order to support and incentives to the dairy industry.
In this way, he said, more jobs will be created and at the same time it will ensure that the kids’ milk requirement are met.
“Sinabi rin ni Mayor Panaligan na dapat bigyang suporta ang local dairy industry sa halip na umasa ng labis sa imported na gatas,” his office said.
