Abucay-based Coop first ‘Suking Tindahan’ recipient in Bataan

BALANGA CITY — Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) conferred its Suking Tindahan Seal to Koop Merkado of Abucay Multi-Purpose Cooperative (AMPC), becoming the first recipient in Bataan.

DTI Provincial Director Nelin Cabahug said the program aims to promote local sari-sari stores, wholesalers, and cooperatives that sell basic and prime commodities within or lower their suggested retail prices.

“This is the first Suking Tindahan in Bataan and we are glad that we are awarding it to a cooperative,” Cabahug said.

AMPC Chairperson Antonio Tengonciang vowed to strengthen partnership with DTI in protecting the welfare of consumers and complying with the trade fair laws.

He also pledged that Koop Mercado will carry at least 50 percent of the basic necessities and prime commodities under the jurisdiction of DTI.

“We hope we continue our partnership with DTI so we could help not just our members but also those who are in need,” Tengonciang furthered.
