Food producers, manufacturers, traders and importers have started lining up at the Department of Agriculture (DA) Central Office in Quezon City as DA steps-up the processing of application for Food Pass Accreditation. This level-up move aims to maintain the unhampered and unimpeded delivery of food and other agricultural commodities in the middle of the enforcement of the enhanced community quarantine in the whole of Luzon.

Nemia Faraon, who is among the first to fill up the prescribed application form, is transporting table eggs from Antipolo to Quezon City. She and husband Santos, owners of the Sabrosa Foods Inc., are also importers of milk, which will be delivered to different cities in Metro Manila.

The DA’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Service (AMAS), remains in full force amidst the month-long quarantine to manage the accreditation process and ensure the regular monitoring of supplies of stocks at various points of the supply chain. (Photo by Alarico Nuestro, DA-AFID)
