The 15-stall area is an apparent cottage industry in the city and has been sought-after dining destination for its accessibility and affordability. However, the need for sanitary facility, water connections, and food safety enforcement is undeniably a matter of concern.

In a research study conducted by faculty-researchers of Jose Rizal Memorial State University- Ms. Kristine Gladys Jambre and Ms. Maria Jyl Lagorra, the presence of pathogens namely Total Coliform, Escherichia coli, Yeast and Mold, and Salmonella are linked to improper handling and processing; use of contaminated water during washing and dilution; cross contamination; or the use of dirty processing utensils.

Results of the research study, consultation with the Association members, dialogue with the local government, and staunch advocacy of DOST in the promotion of food safety in the local food establishments inspire the realization of this project.

The ceremony is part of DOST IX’s celebration of the National Science and Technology Week in Zamboanga Peninsula from 23-29 November 2020. Among other activities conducted were different webinars focusing on Health, Research and Development, DRRM, Invent School Program, launching of the iFAIMS, and Inauguration of SEA SEED Program in Zamboanga City.
