“This is under our Tagpuan Day activity which is one of NFA’s distribution strategies intended for marginalized consumers in far-flung areas especially indigenous peoples to ensure that they can directly avail low-priced and good quality NFA rice at appointed day and time,” NFA provincial manager Adelaida Nuestro said.

“The accredited store is being managed by Zenaida Aquile who is a native of Magbikin tribe. NFA rice is sold here at Php 27 per kilo,” he added.
