Women Partner with DTI in Nipa Vinegar Production

SAN FABIAN, Pangasinan – The Pangasinan Council of Women Incorporated (PCWI) renewed its partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to produce the nipa vinegar ’ in tetra-packs.
Irene Libunao, PCWI founding chairman, said a memorandum of agreement was signed over a year ago between PCWI and DTI provincial office for the giving of equipment to the women’s group to enable them to produce nipa vinegar.
Libunao explained the equipment will be used to produce nipa vinegar, and pack and seal the produce in tetra-packs.
Nipa vinegar is an organic vinegar made from nipa palm that grows in rivers and estuaries and is abundant in the town.
She said PCWI members from barangay Songkoy are already making nipa vinegar but are selling their produce in bottles.
“We want to widen the market, so with DTI’s equipment we can make this in tetra packs which will be affordable”, she said.
PCWI continues with its goal to empower women in barangays through livelihood programs.
“We are currently producing bangus in corn oil and tomato paste with the equipment previously given by DTI under the Shared Service Facility program”, said Libunao.
PCWI has almost 7, 000 members in San Fabian town alone.
