Turnover of refrigerated trucks in CAR

Hauling trucks that included refrigerated vans by Coolaire were awarded to different farmers cooperatives and associations (FCAs) to benefit the rice and vegetable farmers in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).

Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the turnover ceremony on October 29, 2021 at the Baguio Animal Breeding and Research Center (BABRC) compound.

The DA-CAR High-Value Crops Development Program’s Coolaire refrigerated vans aims to lessen the Benguet farmers’ transportation cost and speed up the delivery of their produce.

Assistant Secretary for Strategic Communications Noel Reyes, DA-CAR Executive Director Cameron Odsey, Regional Technical Director (RTD) for Operations Danilo Daguio, and RTD for Research and Regulations Jennilyn Dawayan joined the agri chief during the event.
