DTI & DAR launch crunchy tilapia training to farmers coop

Mindanao Goldstar Daily

LALA, Lanao del Norte (25 July 2015) - The El Salvador Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative of Barangay El Salvador in Lala, Lalano del Norte, has been a growing cooperative for the past years as they see opportunities that come their way.

Now, they have noted some of the fisher folks in the area sell tilapia at a lower price, or just throw away small tilapia.  The Cooperative saw this as an opportunity to make another product.  They want to enhance this tilapia into something that would entice the market.

Thus, the Department of Trade and Industry-Lanao del Norte (DTI-LDN), in partnership with the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR)-10, spearheaded the Skills Training in Crunchy Tilapia-Making conducted at the barangay hall on July 24, 2015.

Entrepreneur specialist Florencia C. Cordero of Malaybalay, Bukidnon, who has been successfully making crunchy tilapia since 2012, shared her expertise to some 13-coop members during the one-day training.

Participants made 1.25-kilograms dried crunchy tilapia out of the five kilograms fresh tilapia.

"Wise is the man who sees opportunities in all forms," said Paclipan.
