Technology commercialization and business incubation in Tuburan, Cebu were given full support in that Cebu Technological University (CTU) and Lamac Multipurpose Cooperative (LMPC) finally established a Smart Food Center on May 4.
The launching featured a week-long capability training of CTU Tuburan students and faculty and LMPC employees, with the financial support from the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research.
Both institutions have ventured into seaweed and coconut commercialization for over a year now and has since impacted the lives of farmers across provinces.
