Bogo City and the Municipality of Bantayan are the latest local government units to have delivered their products at the Cebu South Bus Terminal, which is designated as a “bagsakan center” for wholesale purchase of farm produce and fish.

Bogo City delivered dried fish while Bantayan delivered fresh eggs and fish.

A total of 24 truckloads of products used the “bagsakan center” last May 7, bringing the total volume of delivery to 64,140 kilograms. Assorted vegetables from Dalaguete, vegetables and fruits from Sibonga, “buko” (young coconut) from Barili, and fish from San Remigio are the regular products brought to CSBT. 

But as of May 7, spices like spring onions and bell pepper from Dalaguete are the latest items in the delivery list.

As of May 8, a total of 13 trucks loaded with 50,500 kilograms of “buko,” assorted vegetables, fresh fish, dried fish, and bananas came from Argao, Barili, Bogo City, Dalaguete, San Remigio, and Sibonga.

“Nya karong adlawa duna nay nalahi nga transaksyon. Duna nay truck gipadala gikan sa Dalaguete nga mi-load og rice and corn – bugas humay ug bugas mais - gikan sa Mandaue City,” Governor Gwendolyn Garcia shared in her daily livestream report over “Sugbo News.”

The transaction refers to the loading of essential goods with Mandaue City as supplier of the 225 bags or 11,250 kilograms of rice and corn grits to Dalaguete as the buyer.

“Gipadala ning truck ni Mayor Jeffrey Belcina. Kaniadto moadto ning truck kon hain ni nila pik-apon ang bugas ug mais. Karon gidala na ngadto sa South Bus Terminal ang bugas ug didto gi-loading. I’m happy to tell you nga dili na kinahanglan pa mosagol ngadtos Pasil ug Carbon. Makita nato nga it is working, nga nahimo gyud nga efficient solution sa kanhi atong problema sa pag-deliver,” Garcia accentuated.

She further thanked Carbon Public Market administrator Junel Matuguina and Cebu City Agriculturist Joey Baclayon for the support extended to the Provincial Agriculturist’s Office, headed by Dr. Roldan Saragena, in informing more wholesalers to support the “bagsakan center” at the CSBT.
