CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, June 14 (PNA) — The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Misamis Oriental will open the “One Town One Product (OTOP)” store in SM mall Cagayan De Oro on Sunday for the 64th City Charter Day Celebration here.
The OTOP store will feature more than 50 local products from all over Misamis Oriental including meat products, pastries, native sweets, concoctions, beverages, bags and other creations.
The outlet was conceived to help promote local produce and to provide a venue for small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to sell their products.
“Our local products are excellent, but most of them are not accessible in the groceries. We are proud to bring them to SM Cagayan de Oro. It is time for us to experience and patronize our very own,” said DTI provincial director Ma. Eliza A. Pabillore in a statement to media..
Pabillore said that the DTI has also invited manufacturers of locally made products for display and selling in the OTOP, particularly from the neighboring provinces of Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao Del Norte and Misamis Occidental.
The OTOP at the SM Mall here is an ideal venue to display locally made and manufactured products whose owners want exposure in the local and international markets, she said. (PNA)
