Mayor Dimacuha eyes food security plan for the city
Batangas City Mayor Beverley Dimacuha is eyeing a food security plan for the city.
The Batangas politiko and Office of the City Veterinary Agricultural Services Chief Dr. Maracio Hornilla recently attended the country’s first ever Food Security Summit last October.
The event, which aimed to encourage local government units to formulate their food security plan for 2019-2023, was attended by local government executives from Regions 4 and 5.
Hornilla said Batangas City needs to address the supply of fish, eggs, and high value crops in the city.
He explained that despite being a coastal area, not much fish is caught in Batangas City because of the many ships passing through the area.
Hornilla also said many areas in the city have been declared sanctuaries.
Meanwhile, he said he will push for more budget for the distribution of egg-laying chickens.
Hornilla also said he wants to address the lack of garlic and onion production in the city.
