DINALUPIHAN, Bataan – National Food Authority (NFA) Administrator, Mr. Renan B. Dalisay visited the town of Dinalupihan last March 13 to conduct market inspection at the municipality’s public market and to meet with NFA-Bataan employees.
Mr. Dalisay was warmly welcomed by Dinalupihan Town Mayor, Hon. Gila Garcia; NFA-Bataan Provincial Manager, Mrs. Adelaida C. Nuestro; Bataan Grains Retailers Association (BAGRETAS) President, Mr. Conrado Sebastian and some members of the press. With him were NFA-Central Luzon Regional Manager, Mr. Amadeo B. de Guzman; Director of NFA-Public Affairs Department, Mr. Angel “Gerry” Imperial, Jr. and other NFA officials.
The visit kicked-off with a market inspection at the Dinalupihan Public Market where the Administrator and company met with some of the agency’s accredited retailers. The good Administrator also granted the media personnel a brief interview where he assured the public of the stable price and enough supply of rice. Administrator Dalisay also noted the lower price of some variety of commercial rice in the market.
Right after his market inspection, the group then proceeded to the Gobel Warehouses located in the vicinity of the public market where Administrator Dalisay was again welcomed by NFA-Bataan employees and the other officers of BAGRETAS.
Gobel Warehouse Supervisor, Mrs. Estelita Lacaron, presented the stocks at the warehouse to the Administrator and company and also answered some of his queries regarding the stocks that came from Subic Port.
After the warehouse inspection, a short program ensued wherein Mayor Gila Garcia and PM Nuestro again welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the Administrator for visiting the town of Dinalupihan and the province of Bataan, despite his busy schedule.
Administrator Renan Dalisay then thanked everyone for the warm welcome and also noted that March 13, 2015 marks his fourth month as Administrator of the NFA. He admitted that compared to most of the agency’s employees who have been with NFA for more than twenty years, he can be regarded as a student, because he is a work in progress and still learning from the agency. He also added that being out in the field, conducting market inspections and meeting stakeholders and employees is what he enjoys the most in his job. This is because he learns a lot from his encounters with these stakeholders and meeting them assures him in his belief of the stakeholders and the agency employees’ significant role in food security.
As a parting message, he stressed that no matter what happens, the National Food Authority will always be around to serve the public.
