“The new trading center is part of the Aquino administration’s commitment to improve the marketability of the semi-temperate vegetables grown in the province and to sustain the growth of the lucrative local vegetable industry for the benefit of the thousands of families relying on vegetable farming as their primary source of income,” he said.

The center is expected to be completed in 12 to 18 months, according to Gazmin, noting management an d operation will be handled by the local government, Benguet Farmers Marketing Cooperative, DA, BSU, and the Office of the Congressman.

Dr. Violeta Salda, technical working group member representing BSU, said the center will handle 84 commodities that are screened for quality control.

There will be a warehouse where surplus from the traded vegetable goods will be put in cold storage.

Aside from the spot trading area, other facilities are processing areas trimming and cleaning produce, solid waste handling, parking, cafeteria and lounge, dormitory and a bank.
