Surigao Norte coop showcases native products in Siargao

Surfers and visitors of the 14th Siargao International Surfing Cup need not to go far in order to shop for food, souvenirs and things to bring home to their respective homes.

The Surigao del Norte Provincial Cooperative Office headed by its OIC chief Gemma Entendez organized a mini-tiangge here in this town showcasing the native products of the province.

Agricultural products from Gigaquit – the Gigaquit Rhum (Pauroy), popular delicacy called ampao (pop rice) in Placer, banana and cassava chips from the Rural Improvement Club, novelty and souvenir items crafted by the Provincial Jail Inmates, dried squid, polvoron, tikog banig and placemats are just some of the products currently displayed.

Surigao del Norte Governor Robert Ace Barbers believes that having this kind of activity is an opportunity to promote the investments and livelihood opportunities of the province.

The mini-tiangge opened last September 14 and will end on September 26, 2008. (PIA)
