In a busy area , who would ever thought that an organic farm in Taguig City can be established to promote sustainability.

Bayer Kubo opens an organic farm in Taguig City that aims to  contribute to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG)  of zero hunger by 2030.

Respectively, Bayer Philippines Inc. managing director Vinit Jindal emphasized that establishing farm within the city enables achieve food security amidst the growing population of the Philippines.

The 200-square meter farm is located in Pamayanang Diego Silang in Barangay Ususan in Taguig City.

The urban farm in Taguig is one of the plans of the company in the Philippines.

“Bayer will supply all the needs of the urban farm from seeds to technical-agronomic assistance to training of people,” report from Philstar stated.

“Upscale hotel Conrad Manila, which traditionally sources its supply of vegetables and herbs from the local market, has committed to buy its goods from Bayer Kubo,” report added

“We know the produce will be of high-quality with this partnership with Bayer and the community,” Conrad Manila general manager Laurent Boisdron said.

 The local government of Taguig and civic group Rise Against Hunger are included in the memorandum of agreement.

“Direct participation from the Pamayanang Diego Silang and the presence of a direct market in Conrad Manila are major factors to sustainability,” Rise Against Hunger executive director Jomar Flores said.

“We put up our first food bank (food storage centers for free distribution to urban poor) in Taguig City. Food banks will only succeed if it’s in an urban area, not rural. The food manufacturers are there (as food supply sponsors),” he said.
