P362 million worth of smuggled vegetables destroyed in Pampanga

Some P362 million (€6.15 million) worth of smuggled vegetables and other agricultural products smuggled into the Philippines by Chinese businessmen were destroyed by government authorities led by the Bureau of Customs (BoC).

Port of Subic District Collector Maritess T. Martin said 18 of the 60 forty-footer container vans carrying assorted vegetables - mostly onions, carrots, and broccoli - were brought to Greenleaf for condemnation while the remaining container vans were under the custody of the BoC Port of Subic.

"The Greenleaf 88 Hazardous and Non-hazardous Waste Disposal Facility situated in Barangay Mitla is accredited by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) due to its sophisticated machinery and equipment," said Robert Gaza, administrator of Greenleaf 88.
