DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) director Dr. Junel B. Soriano met with undersecretary-designate for Consumer and Political Affairs and OIC-director of the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Service Kristine Y. Evangelista and undersecretary for Livestock William C. Medrano to discuss potential R4DE initiatives to broaden market reach of R4D-generated food-based products and those from the other supply chain by expanding institutional markets, following and complementing with the Kadiwa ni Ani and Kita program.

This effort is in line with the goal for the agriculture department to prioritize immediate high impact programs to ensure food sufficiency and re-establish the agricultural value chain. 

DA-BAR officials, assistant director for Programs Joell H. Lales and Research Program Development Division head Raymond Patrick C. Cabrera, and Ms. Aleli Manguilin of the Office of the undersecretary for Consumer and Political Affairs also joined the meeting.
