KALIBO, Aklan, 20 April (PIA6) --  Aklan has sufficient rice supply, according to the National Food Authority (NFA) here.

This assurance came from NFA-Aklan Provincial Manager Josephine Venus Castillo, who, in a recent interview in a local radio station here, said Aklan is a rice-surplus province and there are no problems as to current inventory of the food staple in Aklan.

Castillo also clarified that the NFA’s role as far as palay procurement is concerned, is on  price-support function as the agency cannot control farmers if they wish to sell their produce to private rice traders who are offering higher palay prices.

The NFA, however, as in the past, is appealing to farmers to sell them part of their produce which will serve as palay buffer stock of the province to be stored at the government warehouse.

As of now, Castillo said NFA-Aklan has a total of 14,422 bags of rice in its warehouse.

Castillo also shared that in case of rice shortage in Aklan due to calamities, the depot warehouse of NFA-Capiz could also provide because this province is also a rice-surplus one.

Meanwhile, in a recent meeting of the Aklan Public Information Officers Association here, NFA-Aklan, through Christine Pinuela, Information Officer-Designate, called on local government units in Aklan to have their Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the food agency renewed this year so that in case of calamities, these municipalities could readily retrieve or source NFA rice for their constituents.
