CITY OF MALOLOS – Bulakenyos and tourists from nearby cities and provinces flocked to the three-day Bulacan Food Fair and Exposition (BUFFEX), a joint project of the Bulacan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and the Provincial Government of Bulacan held at the Hiyas Pavilion in this city.

“Ang pangunahing layunin po natin ay maging daan upang magbukas ang maraming oportunidad para sa lahat. Nais nating lumakad pasulong at abutin ang pinakamataas na baytang ng tagumpay sa pagnenegosyo. Gamit ang paglulunsad ng BUFFEX 2013, ipinamamalas natin ang "enterpreneurial spirit" na siyang inspirasyon at motibasyon ng bawat isang nagnanais na maging matagumpay sa kanyang negosyo,” Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado said.

The governor further said that he believes that a country’s progress depends on the cooperation of different sectors.

“Ang ekonomiya ng ating bansa ay nakasalalay sa magagawa at sa maihahandog na serbisyo ng bawat negosyo sa komunidad at sa ating mga mamamayan. Ang pagsisikap ng bawat isa ang magbubukas ng pinto sa lalo pang pag-unlad ng lalawigan ng Bulacan,” Alvarado added.

The BUFFEX housed various products that are proudly Bulacan-made like ensaymada, puto, pastillas, chicharon, pastries, bread, kakanin, vinegar, soy sauce, bagoong, hampers, and pillow cases among others.

Aside from food and product exhibits, the BUFFEX also featured relevant talks from experts in business and marketing.

“Maganda po ang nagagawa ng mga ganitong programa sa aming mga maliliit na negosyante kasi nakikilala kami hindi lang dito sa atin sa Bulacan kundi maging sa ibang lugar,” said Pamela Mercado, puto manufacturer from Plaridel.

Carol Galang from Bustos said that aside from promoting their Minasa, they also sold a lot in the food expo.

According to the BCCI, almost 70 exhibitors joined the program aside from the 16 other sponsors who made the event possible.

“Nais nating makamit ang mas mahusay at matatag na kinabukasan para sa ating mga anak. Nais nating gumawa ng panghabang-panahong pag-usad laban sa kahirapan kaya sinusubukan nating lumikha ng kapaligiran na kung saan ang mga tao ay mamumuhunan upang palawakin ang kanilang mga negosyo o magsimula ng negosyo,” Alvarado said.

The BUFFEX was organized in cooperation with the Department of Science and Technology, Department of Trade and Industry, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry and MSMEDC Bulacan. ###
