The Provincial Technical Working Group on food products headed by Bohol Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief Mayette Gasatan conducted its planning session last 21 May 2010 at Casa Rey Francis, Tagbilaran City. The activity was intended to define priorities of the working group in four priority products, namely, ubi, banana chips, cara-beef kusahos, and calamay. As an output, the planning workshop was able to define the priority action areas of the agencies present to ensure that micro-entrepreneurs engaged in the production process will be assisted in making their livelihoods sustainable.
The PTWG on Food is composed of several agencies. Besides BCCI, national agencies as the Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Agrarian Reform, Agricultural Training Institute, Bohol Agricultural Promotion Center, and business sector representatives (Bohol Quality Pastries, Bucarez Processing) were present in the gathering.
