Capiz Has Enough Rice Stocks- NFA PDF Print E-mail
Information Officer Jose Davila, Jr. of the National Food Authority in Capiz disclosed that the province remains to have sufficient supply of rice.

Davila said that as of June 29, Capiz has a total of 965,095 bags of rice which will last for the next 108 days.

Of the total rice stocks, 284,632 bags belong to the food agency here which is expected to last for 44 days while the commercial stock was recorded at 680,463 bags that will last for 62 days based on the 6,400 bags daily consumption in the province, and a per capita individual consumption of 22 bags per year, he said.

Davila revealed that the adequate rice stocks in the province could be attributed to the intensive palay buying of their agency from the farmers especially during the recent harvest season.

According to him, for the month of June alone, they were able to buy some 11,895 bags of palay while their total palay purchases from January to June reached 54,867 bags.

Because of the adequate rice stocks in the different warehouses of the food agency here, they have opted to initiate an open sale of their local rice to accredited individual as well as group retailers. (JBG/PIA6-Capiz)
