DOST VI, GSC, TPAS ARC ink MOA for S&T interventions

As a Beneficiary of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST) program, the Tinadtaran Piña Agsanayan San Roque Agrarian Reform Cooperative (TPAS ARC) joined hands with the DOST VI and Guimaras State College (GSC) to receive Science and Technology (S&T) interventions.

This collaboration was made official with the ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The MOA entails that GSC and DOST VI can identify the TPAS ARC’s issues that may warrant S&T solutions and intervention.

In doing so, TPAS ARC can reach a wider market and further develop their products, the most recent being their Ready-to-Drink Calamansi Juice and Calamansi Concentrate under the brand name Guimfields. Another intended outcome is that this undertaking can improve not only their products but also their community as a whole through Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI).

As of this writing, meetings are being planned between GSC and TPAS ARC to properly discuss potential interventions in the community.
