Coffee producers in Bukidnon used to struggle reaching buyers. Now, the DOST-assisted enterprise Kape Maramag is their globally competitive ally for smooth-flowing income.
03 November 2017 – Cagayan de Oro – Kape Maramag is all about big earnings and high scores these days. Not only is it making Php 40,000 to 60,000 a month, it also won in the internationally judged Kape Pilipino (KP) Green Coffee Quality Competition last March, scoring a whopping 83.75 out of a hundred.
But before the numbers came rolling in, the coffee farmers in Maramag, Bukidnon were struggling for years in selling their produce. What sparked their inspiring progress was an initiative to organize, supported by agencies such as the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
On November 6, 2017, a Ceremonial Check Turn-Over and Program Orientation was conducted at the Alubijid Municipal Hall during their Monday convocation.
The check turnover is in line with the approved Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST) program assistance, via a project entitled “Enhancement of Community Health, Nutrition, Education and Upgrading of Food Processing Facility” in the amount of Php 665,440.00.
Above: Dr. Roselyn Arellano of DOST- X with Engr. J. L. Ruiz of DOST MisOr hands the check to Hon. Mayor A. G. Labis and Vice-Mayor E. Jamis with the Municipal CEST Focal Person Ms. J. Armecin of LGU Alubijid, Misamis Oriental.
Grass fibers, pressed flowers, and meticulous hands – for the people at Salay Handmade, it’s much more than a hobby. It’s a successful income-generator, assisted by DOST.
09 November 2017 – Salay, Misamis Oriental – Along the highway of the quaint barangay of Poblacion, Salay is an unassuming glass storefront whose door sign says “SHAPII: Made in the Philippines.” The shop is a small square room, its walls lined floor-to-ceiling with greeting cards, picture frames, and purses of various shapes and sizes.
To a passerby, the shop looks like a regular pasalubong store selling trinkets and novelties. In truth, this little square space is only the showcase area of the Salay Handmade Products Industries, Inc. (SHAPII), one of the leading exporters of handicrafts in Region 10.
