Bureau of Plant Industry, Malate, Manila.

 

The Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), through its Applied Communication Division, participated in the recently concluded PAFT Annual Convention and Trade Fair held on 26-28 July 2017 at Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan Events Venue, Libis in Quezon City. Carrying this year's theme, “Leveraging Food Technology Solutions,” the event was organized by the Philippine Association of Food Technologist in celebration of its 56th year anniversary.

The three-day activity aimed to bring people together and to forge strong partnership to bring the latest trends and innovations on food technology solutions and highlight the need to develop new technologies and maximize its application.

As participant, BAR featured various adlay products in its exhibit. A seminar on adlay product development, adlay market trends, and actual food processing demonstration was also presented during the event. This is in line with the efforts of the Department of Agriculture (DA) on achieving food self-sufficiency by developing technologies that will further improve and promote the utilization of adlay crop as an alternative staple food to rice and corn. It also encourages farmers to engage in adlay production as well as entrepreneurs, processors, consumers, and other stakeholders to appreciate the potentials and benefits of adlay food products. ###
