NFA-Kalinga has rice supply for two months

TABUK CITY, Kalinga, Feb. 8 (PIA) -- The National Food Authority (NFA) provincial station has 5,700 bags of the buffer stock, enough to last until early part of April.

 

NFA Provincial Manager Ibarra Mariano Jr said their current inventory could last for two more months based on the province’s monthly average rice requirement of 2,080 bags. The current stock is imported rice from Vietnam that is part of the delivery last December.

With NFA’s mandate to provide accessible cheap quality rice to the grassroot, the provincial station maintains its delivery to at least 60 bigasan outlets in various sites in the province.

On top of this, NFA has to keep ready stock of rice for calamity reserve of local government units, Mariano said.      

 NFA-Kalinga sells rice at P25/kg to accredited retailers who pass it on to consumers at P27-32/kg while commercial rice sells here at P32/kg up.

As Cordillera Region’s top rice producer, there is high supply of rice in the province all year round. Larry T. Lopez (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
