TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan- Local products of the different towns in this province are now showcased at the “Product and Techno Trade Fair” at the capitol grounds as part of the celebration of the 434th Aggao Nac Cagayan.

Of the 29 towns here, 27 joined in this year’s trade fair by putting up their festival booths to promote their products that are mostly hand-crafted by the locals.

The Penablanca town in its cave-inspired booth showcased its fresh water eel caught by Aetas in the upstream part of the town while Amulung showcased its chicharice, made of fried rice and chunky pieces of chicharon and peanut products.

The Claveria town’s booth is designed with locally made soft brooms while the towns of Enrile, Ballesteros and Aparri proudly displayed their peanut products, ‘patupat’, and dried fish.

The Sta Teresita town, known for its ‘Bakong’ plant, displayed its different unique handicrafts made of bakong, a naturally growing plant that used to be useless until it was discovered to have promising potential as fiber material use in making various handicrafts.

Other towns which displayed its local products include Buguey for its one-of-its-kind crabs, Tuguegarao City for its cacao balls and local delicacies, Iguig for its pottery, Lal-lo for its ‘bugnay’ wine and wild berries.

Of the local products displayed in the exhibit, the Abulug’s dragon fruit wine and Calayan’s pure honey are the newest addition to this year’s trade fair.

Some regional and provincial agencies as well as private companies also displayed their locally-made products in the weeklong event.

Governor Manuel Mamba said the trade fair gives opportunities to the local government units to market their products as well as help local entrepreneurs earn for their daily needs.

Mamba said there are many local products that the province could be proud of but local producers need assistance to penetrate the market for their products to be sold.
