UPPSCO Opens Pasalubong Counter




The United Processors and Producers of South Cotabato Organization (UPPSCO) opened its very fist Pasalubong Counter inside the passengers-waiting area of the Philippine Ports Authority (Makar Wharf) in General Santos City on December 14, 2010. 

Initially, about 10 different Micro-Enterprises started selling their products in the Counter that included processed foods, recycled bags, and nito products. Edna Feliprada, the President of UPPSCO, said that "at last UPPSCO is starting to consolidate Proudly South Cotabato Products to the market." 

UPPSCO, organized in 2009, was the output of DTI's effort to develop ME networks that will help each other in terms of marketing support and other initiatives. 

The realization of the OTOP Pasalubong Counter was a joint effort of the Philippine Ports Authority, PLGU South Cotabato, and DTI (RuMEPP and CARP) South Cotabato. 

The Counter is initially open during travel schedules of sea vessels every Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Manager of PPA will also be supporting the idea to bring Proudly South Cotabato Products to the fishing vessels (passenger boats).
