2021 is International Year of Fruits and Vegetables

As we move to a new year of achieving better production, nutrition, environment, and life for all Filipino people, let us welcome 2021 with an advocacy to raise awareness of the benefits of consuming more fruits and vegetables.

In line with the United Nations’ declaration of 2021 as the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables (IYFV), the Agricultural Training Institute joins the nation in looking at the fruit and vegetable sector holistically as an integral part of the food system. Likewise, the Institute commits to go beyond nutritional benefits and further give awareness on their social, economic, and environmental advantages—consequently addressing the challenges on food availability and sustainability.

Together, let us make a difference within the fruit and vegetable sector. Know more about #IYFV2021 at http://www.fao.org/fruits-vegetables-2021/en/.

Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves.
