Kadiwa expansion needed now | Inquirer Business




With high food prices, falling farmgate prices affecting farmers and fishermen, and the potential threat and food insecurity amid the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine, we need to expand Kadiwa.

The Kadiwa program is a farm-to-consumer marketplace chain that offers consumers lower retail prices. It allows producers to generate higher revenues by selling their products directly to consumers.

Last March 8, President Marcos said there are currently around 500 Kadiwa stores across the country. He added, “We’re thinking about developing it further — not that kind of pop-ups, but having permanent Kadiwa centers in different local government entities.”

agro-industrial centers

Last Wednesday, at the monthly Usapang Pagkain and press conference organized by the Philippine Chamber of Agriculture and Food, Inc., its President Danilo Fausto pushed for an expansion of Kadiwa centers to 4,000 to cover 10 percent of all barangays.

He proposed reorganizing the Kadiwas into Kadiwa Mini Agro-Industrial Centers (MAICs). These would be connected to larger centers via a system approach. For example, for rice, the system would include yard dryers, storage facilities, a mobile rice mill, and delivery trucks. For fish there would be shock freezers, cold stores and small ice factories.

Each MAIC will be directly linked to retailers and could have forward production contracts with agribusinesses and food processors. It is primarily owned, managed and operated by the association or cooperative, which could form a joint venture with the local government entity or the Agribusiness Corporation under the direction of the Department of Agriculture (DA). Locally made farm machinery that meets the unique needs of their communities will be promoted.

A MAIC will have a budget of 3 to 5 million pesos. To cover 4,000 barangays, that would mean a budget of 16 billion pesos, less than 10 percent of the 40 percent increased agriculture budget of 164 billion pesos this year. This is a small price to pay for the tremendous benefits it offers.

On June 27 last year, the AgriFisheries Alliance (representing the three sectors of farmers and fishermen, agribusiness, and science and academia) put forward a series of recommendations in a letter to the President to give a boost to agriculture when Mr. Marcos began his term . The President welcomed the recommendations at a subsequent meeting. The group then included the need for decentralized agriculture as exemplified in the MAIC strategy.

In a subsequent July 16 letter, prosecutors called on private sector leaders to recommend a new direction for agriculture to be presented to the President. The leaders of six agriculture-related coalitions came together to present a 69-page document entitled “Towards an Effective Farm and Fisheries Plan” on August 15.

budget constraints

Among other things, he mentioned the need for decentralized agricultural development at the local level. However, with the 2022 budget largely depleted due to massive COVID-related spending, not much could be done to support these recommendations.

With the increased farming budget this year, supported by the President, we can now support a significant expansion of Kadiwa.

We should finally abandon the government’s unwise tendency to over-rely on tariff cuts and imports. Some economists believe the private sector should stop being “spoiled” and become competitive without support.

Our strategy should be a development strategy, with the necessary involvement of the private sector. The Kadiwa MAIC extension is one such strategy.

Gwyneth Paltrow ski trial gets personal: divorce, anger, estrangement




Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyers questioned the daughter of a man who was suing the actor-turned-lifestyle influencer a ski collision in 2016 about missing GoPro camera footage, which they called “the most important piece of evidence” in court today.

Steve Owens, Paltrow’s attorney, asked one of the man’s daughters, Polly Grasham, about emails exchanged with her father about the mysterious footage and the possibility that the lawsuit was filed against Paltrow because she was famous.

The Go Pro footage was not found or included as evidence at the trial.

“I’m famous…at what cost?” Terry Sanderson, the 76-year-old retired optometrist who sued Paltrow, wrote in the subject line of an email to his family aReported Mediaser the crash.

Sanderson is suing Paltrow for more than $300,000 in damages, alleging she recklessly drove into him seven years ago on a beginner’s run at Deer Valley Resort, breaking his ribs and leaving him with a concussion. Paltrow has claimed that Sanderson caused the crash and has countersued for $1 and attorneys’ fees.

The trial took on an increasingly personal touch on the third day of trial, when Sanderson’s daughter and a neuropsychologist testified about his deteriorating health.

Sanderson’s attorneys tried to convince the jury that the clash had altered their client’s resume, brain damaged him, and damaged his relationships with loved ones.

Paltrow’s attorneys questioned whether Grasham and neuropsychologist Dr. Alina Fong could say with certainty that Sanderson’s downturn was not due to aging or documented conditions prior to the accident. They questioned Grasham about her father’s anger issues, divorce and estranged relationship with another of his daughters, who is not testifying in court.

Paltrow has previously called the lawsuit an attempt to take advantage of their fame and notoriety. On Thursday, Steve Owens, her lead attorney, asked Grasham why her father sent messages related to her fame.

“It suits his personality a bit and makes a serious situation easy,” Grasham said of the email.

Owens explored Sanderson’s “obsession” with the case and whether he thought it was “cool” to bump into a celebrity like Paltrow, the Oscar-winning star of “Shakespeare in Love” and founder and CEO of wellness company Goop.

Sanderson is also expected to testify on Thursday about the lingering effects of the crash as the third day of trials takes an increasingly personal turn aReported Mediaser a day of experts. He was not present in the courtroom while his doctors and experts detailed his health problems.

Paltrow is expected to be subpoenaed on Friday or early next week if the eight-day trial resumes.

Proceedings to date have touched on subjects ranging from skier etiquette to the power – and burden – of celebrity. The amount of money at stake for both sides pales in comparison to the typical legal costs of a multi-year litigation and expert-heavy process. Sanderson’s attorney told the jury Thursday that this trial was about “value, not cost.”

For the first two days of the trial, attorneys argued over whether Sanderson or Paltrow were further down the slope during the collision – a disagreement rooted in a “Skiers Responsibility Code” that gives the right-of-way to anyone skiing downhill. Sanderson’s attorneys and medical experts described how his injuries were likely caused by someone hitting him from behind. They attributed noticeable changes in Sanderson’s mental acuity to injuries sustained that day.

Paltrow’s attorneys have attempted to portray Sanderson as a 76-year-old whose decline was more a result of normal aging than the effects of an accident. They have not yet called any witnesses of their own to testify, but in opening statements pre-announced to the jury, they plan to call Paltrow’s husband, Brad Falchuk, and their two children, Moses and Falchuk Appleto the booth.
