It is delicious to pair known Filipino foods “Puto” (Steamed cake) with “Dinuguan” (Pork Blood Stew/Blood Pudding Stew) and also “Suman” (rice cake) with Mango.
However this kind of “pairing” is not only applicable with native foods but is also done with products which promote tourism.
This coming Friday, producers and suppliers in the resort industry from regions 3, 4, and 6 which includes Bohol, Cebu, Palawan, Davao, and Cagayan De Oro together with Aklan will be gathered in an event.
Participants are encouraged to bring with them their “sample products” and promotional materials in order for it to be paired or matched with that of the other delegates.
According to the Department of Trade or DTI-Aklan, the said event is an opportunity for producers and suppliers to establish a “buyer-supplier” connection which could prosper to a continued “business agreements” which in turn could further stabilize the tourism industry.
The Speed Matching Event will be held in a certain resort in Station 3 in Boracay, from 11am until 5 in the afternoon and is under the Leveraging Industries for Supply Chain (LINCs) Program of the DTI.
