6 Introduction Background Objectives Activities Results Issues & Concerns Recommendations

7 In 2010, the Philippines passed a law on Promoting and Developing Organic Agriculture, otherwise known as Republic Act 10068; In 2012, the Department of Agriculture issued a memorandum circular on the guidelines for the establishment of organic trading posts; In 2013, proposals from 75 Local Governments Units (LGU) for setting up the organic trading posts were approved by the DA with counterpart from the LGU; In 2016, a national summit was organised to assess the results of establishing organic trading posts in the country;

8 Section 18 mandated the designation of a separate area to display the organic produce to avoid mixing it with non-organic produce in retail establishments or stores of organic produce; Section 19 mandated the Local Chief Executives to establish at least one trading post for organic inputs (and produce) for every Local Government Unit in their area of jurisdiction;

9 To ensure availability and accessibility of certified or registered organic inputs and organic food for farmers, producers, manufacturers and stakeholders interested in adopting organic agricultural practices; To promote and showcase farmers organic produce such as organic inputs and products in strategic areas; To provide an outlet for selling organic food and products;

10 1. Selection of Target Sites 1. Convergence initiative sites 2. Sites where organic farming is advanced 3. Areas with established demo farms 2. Selection of products to be sold in the OTP 1. Third party certified products 2. First party and second party verified or PGS Products 3. Eligible Proponents (Local Governments) 1. Willing to provide counterpart for the project; 2. Must have existing Local Technical Committee on Organic Agriculture; 3. Must have a local ordinance in support of the Organic Agriculture Program; 4. Must identify or create a Management Team to oversee the implementation or operation;

11 The DA allocated PhP 1.5 M ($30,000) for the building, equipment and working capital and Local Governments are required to provide land as counterpart and expenses for operations and maintenance The DA tapped the Organic Producers Trade Association (OPTA Philippines) to provide training to the Management Team on Good Organic Retailing Practices, Organic Enterprise Management, Guarantee System, Finance & Marketing The Local Governments constructed the building, purchased equipment, hired personnel and operated the organic trading posts;

12 75 Total approved Organic Trading Posts, 40 were completed with 35 operational & 5 for launching 32 for completion 3 non-operational or have stopped operations

14 1. Most stores are open daily and some stores open a farmers market day once a week; 2. Organic food products sold are rice (well-milled, unpolished and coloured - black, red, violet), lowland vegetables, some coffee, some herbs & spices, some livestock and poultry; 3. Organic input products sold are open pollinated seeds, compost, vermi-compost, liquid fertilisers (fermented solutions); mokusako (charcoal vinegar as pesticide), 4. Source of organic products are from local producers groups and some independent producers; 5. Prices paid to farmers are based on prevailing prices and some with premium; 6. Sales per OTP generated annually is wide ranging, few have reached the PhP1.5 M ($30K) annual sales 7. Consumers are mostly employees from local governments, schools and businesses, hospitals and subdivisions;

15 1. Small volumes of organic products in the OTPs - Low adaptors of OA due to low yield, inadequate awareness on OA farming systems and existence of OTPs - Seasonality of the products - Limited suppliers of organic products due to certification 2. Some consumers still prefer conventional products over OA products due to price and perceived quality difference - Unaware of health, social and environmental benefits, among others - Lack or weak marketing plans to promote OTPs 3. Consumers unaware on the existence of OTPs in their area - Location of some OTPs are not accessible to consumers, some also pose concerns for management team

16 4. Problem on fund liquidation of LGUs resulting in the delay in the completion of the OTPs and late release of fund for operating capital 5. Operators are mostly from LGUs in the absence of ready Farmers Associations/ Cooperatives /Peoples Organisations to manage the operations purchasing of goods needs to undergo government procurement procedure or other accounting rules such as processing of Cash Advance and liquidation process 6. Majority of the products in OTP are not certified 7. Political issues and likely changes in the priorities of the local executives, given transition phase of new administration 8. Climate change and weather disturbances, such as droughts, typhoons, resulting to limited production and supply in the OTP 9. Availability of planting materials and seeds for organic farmers

17 1. Proper documentation of sales (breakdown), recording farmer suppliers and sources (production area per crop, volume, unit price) 2. Come up with OA Farmers Day/ Market Day, as venues for farmers to promote their products; sustain for those which already have regular Market Days 3. Showcase variety of products to encourage consumers to visit OTPs 4. Coordination with LGUs to support OA and come up with resolutions (through Local Councils) to support OTP; OA programs to be included in their Provincial Development Plan 5. Coordinate with other government agencies and private sector groups and network for OA promotion 1. Dept of Tourism to include OTP as tourist destination; 2. Dept of Science and Technology on packaging and product innovations; 3. Dept of Trade & Industry on product development, and enterprise development; 4. National Organic Agriculture Board relating to OA development and promotion 5. Agriculture and Fisheries Councils (AFCs) at various levels

18 6. Strengthen consumer awareness activities on OA through conduct of training, seminars, trade fairs and tap local televisions, radio stations to promote OA programs 7. Explore all possible markets, such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals, schools, government agencies, cooperatives, etc. 8. Tap other OA suppliers like PGS farmers 9. OTPs with delayed capitalization fund can offer consignment as payment scheme for their suppliers of organic products 10. Always coordinate with the Regional OA Focal and lobby stronger for LGU support; confer with AMADs for data profiling
