With the lack of transportation systems and suppressed routes due to the enhanced community quarantine, produce from farmers in the provinces are not being delivered and consumed with previous reports on farmers even giving their produce for free, lest it rot and go to waste.

To address this issue, Bangon Benguet—a farm-to-table initiative managed by the Department of Agriculture with the help of Victory Liners, Inc.—will transport around 5,000 kilograms of fresh produce from Benguet farmers to Manila. 

All items are 1st Class Quality vegetables straight from our Cordillera farmers 🙂

Available vegetables include Baguio beans, broccoli, cabbage, kamote, ginger, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, wombok and more—all priced at a maximum of P250 per kilo. The minimum quantity of orders is half a kilogram per individual item.

Once the produce has arrived in Manila, Bangon Benguet will have a pickup point at Victory Liner Cubao Terminal (southbound along EDSA), but the produce can also be delivered to your homes through Lalamove or GrabExpress with delivery fees shouldered by the customer.

Here’s how you can order your fresh vegetables 🙂 For this batch, deliveries will be spread from April 16 to 17.Thank you so much!
