The Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX (DOST-IX) has recently approved the project to upgrade the tablea production facility of Roteo Farm. The assistance, amounting to P 131,400.00, is funded under the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP). The Roteo Farm, owned by Ms. Teosista Balladares, is located at Pian, Polanco, Zamboanga del Norte.

Processing cacao into chocolate tablet was inherited by the current owner from her parents. Through the new technology introduced by Cocoa Foundation of the Philippines (CocoaPhil), the farm was able to acquire facilities such as solar and mechanical dyer, fermentation boxes and shredder for cacao peels.

Fruit processors to be profitable must have good quality products, attractive packaging and a well-managed business. The efforts to preserve the products and to ensure their quality must begin in the proper selection of fruits and various techniques during processing.

The abundance of fresh tropical fruits in Mindanao and the lack of fruit processing plants in the area inspired the incorporators of Polyfruits Inc. to set up one in 2005. Polyfruits Inc. formally began its operation in 2007 which first processed mango and calamansi fruits. Marketed under the name ‘Zamgo’, the firm now includes durian and cacao tablets in their products. Zamgo has reached local demand centers in the Philippines to include Cebu, Davao and Manila and export markets such as China and Tahiti. Among their products are dried green and yellow mango, pickled mango, mango concentrate, calamansi concentrate and durian jam.

The Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX has recently approved the project to upgrade the existing ironworks and body building services of Erjem Ironworks and Car Doctor. The assistance amounting to P 460,000.00 was funded through the Department of Science and Technology – Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (DOST-SETUP). Erjem Ironworks and Car Doctor is located at Brgy. Pagasa, Bongao, Tawi-Tawi.

Erjem’s has three (3) shops catering quality metal fabrication works and automotive services to customers in Bongao and other municipalities in Tawi-Tawi. With their 2 shops located along the National roads and one at the pier, the firm is strategically accessible to customers especially those from the islands. The firm’s products among others are window grills, other steel casements, steel gates, body of auto vehicles and other fabricated equipment.

In line with its efforts to increase productivity and competitiveness of the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), the Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX (DOST IX), through its Small Enterprises Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) has recently released the amount of Five Hundred Thousand Pesos (P500,000.00) to implement the project entitled “Upgrading the Quality of Jade’s Cakes, Pastries, and Native Delicacies” situated in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi.  The project was an offshoot of the SETUP Orientation conducted by DOST-IX held last May 15, 2012 in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi.

Jade’s Cakes, Patries and Catering Services started operation in 2006 as a lechon manok stall.  While producing lechon manok stall, the owner also baked cakes and pastries for some friends and neighbors.  In 2007, with the assistance of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the firm was able to register their firm.  Its production, particularly on cakes and pastries, was also gradually increased.  With maintained quality of the products and with referrals and good feedbacks from its previous customer, the business ultimately expanded as demand also tremendously increased. Starting 2008, Jade’s has been known as a producer of quality cakes and pastries among local consumers in Bongao and the neighboring towns in Tawi-Tawi. With the growing market demand, the firm needs to upgrade its facility.   Thus, the DOST-IX’s Regional Technical Evaluation Committee (RTEC)   favorably recommended the approval of SETUP assistance.
