DTI assures no shortage of flour, commodities in city
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

The Department of Trade and Industry assured that there is no flour shortage in the city assuaging consumers’ worries after one of the city’s major bread suppliers suddenly halted operations.

DTI-Cordillera Regional Director Myrna Pablo told Mayor Benjamin Magalong that as per their investigation, the stoppage of operation of the La Trinidad-based bakeshop was not due to the unavailability of flour but because of the owner’s desire to protect the employees from the coronavirus disease-2019.

Pablo said one distributor of flour attested that they have the supply having just delivered to other establishments.

At the moment, the distributor has more than 3,500 sacks supposedly for the local bakeshop that stopped operations and his problem now is how to dispose them, Pablo said.

Pablo said DTI Usec. Ruth Castelo validated that there is no flour shortage as of now.

Magalong also assured that the city has enough inventory of basic goods and commodities as passage problems had been addressed.

“For a while, I was worried of possible shortage as our inventory was only good for two weeks when we began the quarantine but now that the flow of supplies is unhampered, the stocks are now being replenished,” he said.

Magalong added the city will start the pilot run of the rolling market caravan on April 3 where they will bring basic goods and commodities to the barangays.

He said rolling markets will later serve all the 20 districts and Barangay Irisan, the biggest village with more than 20,000 voters.
