Kadiwa at Diskwento Karavan offer Northern Mindanao consumers more food options and other basic commodities

By Patricia Bianca S. Taculao

Through the collaboration of the  Department of Agriculture (DA) and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Kadiwa at Diskwento Karavan (KDK) was launched in Northern Mindanao to bring diverse and reasonably priced essential commodities closer to the Kagay-anons during the community quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

By combining the concepts of both DA’s Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita with DTI’s Diskwento Karavan, KDK aims to provide consumers a wider array of agri-fishery products, basic necessities and other prime commodities.

It serves as a marketing platform where agri-fishery, food products, and other basic goods are sold at affordable rates while removing trading layers by directly linking the farmers and manufacturers to the buyers.

The selection of benefitting barangays along with the safety measures implemented in the program are carried out in close coordination with the Agricultural Productivity Office under the city government of Cagayan de Oro and different barangay officials. 

The KDK is scheduled to serve more barangays of Cagayan de Oro in the days to come.
