Packaging and labeling are essential for drawing customers and conveying important product information in the current competitive market. With this training, participants from diverse micro-enterprises and firms were able to gain valuable insights into the functions and classifications of packaging, different packaging materials, and the mandatory labelling requirements in the Philippines. The participants were also able to apply the principles they had learned through engaging activities and assessments.

The training was provided by resource persons from DOST VI, Ms. Janene L. Denila, Ms. Kay Kristel S. Cainglet, and Ms. Faye Camille D. Jimenea.
