LA TRINIDAD, BENGUET. “I am happy with this type of training conducted by ATI especially for us farmers, packers, and porters, giving importance to safe food handling in farming and selling. In this training, we were reminded of the proper handling for quality and safe produce. This activity has corrected my mind set, not to think immediately of the market but first, I have to practice or implement the recommended practices starting from 5 S in my farm so that I will become compliant with the standards."
