DOT and SSI brings you Philippine food products delivered right at your doorstep
In support of the Philippine Food Producers, the Department of Tourism (DOT) partnered with leading retail group Stores Specialists Inc. (SSI), to bring you Philippine Harvest Online — the online leg of the Philippine Harvest trade fair. Starting April 22, 2020, the Philippine Harvest Online will be promoting local food products from small farmers and MSMEs by making them more accessible to Filipino consumer despite the current circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The participation of featured merchants is free of charge and intends to soften the economic impact of COVID-19 on local food and farm producers whose operations were affected by the pandemic. It is also a way of promoting local cuisine and ingredients amidst the quarantine period.
“With our efforts in taking the Philippine Harvest online, we are showing that COVID-19 will not stop our mission of making locally-sourced food sustainable and available to Filipinos. Not only can Filipinos continue to enjoy the best of local food products, but our hardworking farmers of our farm tourism sites and MSMEs can still receive the support they need,” said Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.

DOT’s Philippine Harvest Trade Fair was established in 2018 in partnership with SSI Group and Central Square Mall in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig to champion the richness of Philippine agriculture, through local, organic, artisanal, and indigenous food products from each of the Philippines’ regions. The endeavor also aims to link the farms and the private sector to new markets.
