The program started with Ms. Wilma Del Rosario, SRS II from PSTC-Laguna, explaining how the CLDD requested DOST’s support to establish a livelihood opportunity for PWDs, senior citizens, and women. Ms. Agnes Soriano from DORENIES then proceeded with explaining the steps in ube processing from paring to slicing the ube tubers.

Ms. Amor Chozas talked about GMP principles and demonstrated how to prepare food free from any contaminants. The participants were able to have a hands on training on food preparation and handling. Mr. Roman Cosico, UBE Farmers Association President, shared his experiences on selection and sourcing of raw materials as well as how to market products through local store and trade fairs.

After the training, the team and participants visited two retail stores in Brgy. San Marcos, San Pablo City, Laguna. They saw the production area of Vangie’s Ube Halaya, current SETUP adoptor in Laguna, and UBE Maria, a SETUP applicant.

This seminar-training helped the participants to become more knowledgeable in ube flour production in order to have a continuous supply of materials even during off peak seasons.|#BALIKAS_News
