Philippines see push of online delivery platform for agri products

In the Philippines, farmers and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are urged to get on board with Deliver-E, an integrated end-to-end e-commerce platform for agricultural and food products. On Monday, the Department of Trade and Industry officially launched the platform in partnership with the Department of Agriculture, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), farmer cooperatives, and private sector partners.

DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez: “The main goal of this project is to increase our country’s food production and ensure supply stability for basic necessities and prime commodities through new business models.” He added that Deliver-E will help MSMEs, farmers, and farmers’ cooperatives sell their products directly to consumers, aiming to increase the income of farmers by cutting intermediaries that will also lower the prices of agricultural goods in the market.

The Deliver-E platform also aims to develop efficient transport and logistics systems for agricultural products, provide MSMEs supply affordable and quality agricultural products, and create a dashboard that will enable the government to gather and analyse real-time data to aid policy making.
