DOST Cebu provides technology training on August 9-11, 2018 for the production of household care products to Boljoon Paglaum Consumers Cooperative in Brgy Arbor, Boljoon, Cebu. The members of the cooperative learned how to produce laundry soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, handwashing soap, fabric conditioner and virgin coconut oil through the mentorship of Engr. Moises Miranda, the resource person of the training.

The training workshop enables them to produce actual products that are considered as initial production outputs of their community-based enterprise. Mr. Alfredo Romeo Awe, the coop’s chairman assured that the technology and skills transferred to them will not be put into waste since they will make sure that this would be turned into sustainable livelihood for the members of the cooperative.

The products are now being sold at the cooperative store in Brgy. Arbor, Boljoon, Cebu. The cooperative will continue to collaborate with DOST so that they could fully maximize the utilization and applications of technology for community empowerment. (by: PSTC Cebu)
