Pasay City, Philippines - Building on the success of the previous year, the Foundation for Resource Linkage and Development (FRLD) has once again welcomed an international array of exhibitors to the highly anticipated AgriLink/FoodLink/AquaLink event.

This remarkable extravaganza has drawn the participation of both local and international companies, further solidifying its reputation as a significant event on the agricultural calendar. Notably, the event features a series of enlightening seminars tailored to engage and empower farmers, fisherfolk, and key players in the agricultural and food industries.

Going the extra mile, FRLD has thoughtfully established additional retail booths, showcasing an extensive array of products sourced from every corner of the Philippines.

At the event, visitors were treated to a delightful assortment of freshly harvested fruits and value-added products from the Association of Learning Sites for Agriculture Region 12 (ALSA Dose), which were available for purchase.

Adding to the event's energy and vibrancy, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), in collaboration with its network of training centers spanning Luzon and Mindanao, actively participated in the event. Various products from Learning Sites for Agriculture (LSA) were prominently displayed for sale.

Notable LSA exhibitors included Heart and Soil Farm School Inc., King Farm, Association of LSA Central Luzon, Lifebank Microfinance Foundation, Chad’s Agri-Business, Coco Craze, Crooc Agri-Tourism, Vilela’s Farm, Artemisium Integrated School, E and B Farm, and various LSAs in Region 12.

In addition to the diverse LSA products, ATI offered valuable insights and timely agri-fishery technologies through the distribution of various Information, Education, and Communication Materials (IECs). To engage visitors, an Agri-Trivia Quiz Bee was organized, allowing walk-in clients and customers to participate actively.

ATI-RTC XII enjoyed substantial success during the three-day event, securing approximately PhP 150,000 in sales.

This annual gathering, hosted by FRLD every October, continues to cement its position as the Philippines' foremost and globally acclaimed trade exhibition dedicated to Agriculture, Food, and Aquaculture.
