Funding assistance amounting to P1,380,000.00 was approved for Anamel Agrivet Supply and Rice Mill, an agri-based firm based in Payao, Zamboanga Sibugay. The firm, which is now on its 2nd project phase of assistance from the Department of Science and Technology – Regional Office no. IX, re-availed the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) for the provision of a one (01) unit mechanical grain dryer.

The aforementioned technology is a system of drying through the reduction of moisture of the grains, often corn and rice, to a level ideal for storage. The whole process only takes approximately 24 hours, thereby reducing rejects due to spoilage.

The firm expects to produce quality rice, enhance productivity by up to 25%, and create three (03) new jobs as a result of the facility upgrades.
