'Jica-DA Project for Market-Driven Enhancement of Vegetable Value Chain in the Philippines'

Value chain project to grow Filipino vegetable sector rolled out

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) and the Department of Agriculture (DA) have started implementing a technical cooperation project intended to develop vegetable value chain models that will help curb rising food prices and unstable food supply.

Dubbed the Jica-DA Project for Market-Driven Enhancement of Vegetable Value Chain in the Philippines (MV2C), the initiative is aligned with the Philippine Vegetable Industry Roadmap 2021-2025 that aims to level up the vegetable sector and achieve food security and better quality of life.

MV2C is expected to serve as an input to realize the strategies of the vegetable industry roadmap with pilot activities in Benguet, Quezon Province, and Metro Manila. These activities include capacity building of farmers to diversify harvest time and stabilize vegetable supply as well as improve the distribution, processing, and consumption of vegetables in the country.
