Women-led enterprises, coops in Antique receive packaging and labeling assistance

In line with the celebration of the National Women’s Month, 12 women-led micro-enterprises and cooperatives in Antique were provided with printed label designs and packaging materials. These enterprises are budding businesses engaged in food processing, including the production of pork tocino and breads and pastries.

The assistance was provided under the Packaging and Labeling Assistance Program of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) VI which aims to elevate the market competitiveness of products through package development that conforms with basic packaging and mandatory labeling requirements in the country. Additionally, the program provided technical training to boost awareness on proper packaging and labeling practices.
