HELP FOR UBI GROWERS AND PROCESSORS AVAILABLE AT DMMMSU
WHEN WE MENTIONED in a previous column that ubi production is a possible venture that may be considered for the R500,000 grant from the Department of Agriculture for upstarts, we got this good news.

Engr. Raffy Espiritu sent us a message that the UBE-Tech Project of the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial University (DMMMSU) in Bacnotan, La Union is willing to assist anybody interested in venturing into ubi, or ube (they are both right) production. The project, headed by Espiritu, was launched in 2017 to find ways that could boost ubi production, especially in Northern Luzon.

Ubi farmers, cooperatives or members of associations, and other stakeholders can now make ubi powder and other related high-value products. They can make use of the Pilot Plant Scale facility put up by the UBE-Tech Project. Ubi powder is used in various food preparations like jam, ice cream, cakes, and many other baked products.
