Kaye Aguilan, JDI product manager expressed, “BiyahEdukasyon has been our way of pursuing continued education for our partners outside of their farms.” She also added, “ Aside from providing farmers solutions through the products that we offer, we believe that by providing them opportunities to learn more about their crop and exposing them to other income-generating ideas, we are able to help them in their business. This in tern ensures that the partnerships we have with them are sustained.”
A total of 90 participants from the provinces of Pangasinan, Batangas, Davao, North Cotabato, Saranggani, and Cagayan De Oro took part in the trip.
