Tiangco cites success of city’s ‘One Barangay, One Product’

The administration of Navotas Mayor John Rey Tiangco has cited the success of the city’s One Barangay, One Product (OBOP) as indicated by greater number of residents who have learned how to produce their own sea products and transformed themselves into businessmen.
“Navotas is rich in resources coming from the ocean. The OBOP serves as a way to celebrate and make the most out of these resources,” according to the city chief executive.
In order to further encourage local residents to engage in these endeavors, Tiangco launched OBOP competition a couple of years ago and just recently Barangay Navotas West emerged victorious in the second round of the competition.
The barangay received P50,000 starting capital for winning 1st place with their tahong chips with Barangay North Bay Boulevard (South) getting P30,000 for placing second with their fish nuggets, and Barangay Bangkulasi bagged P20,000 for being third with their fish siomai.
After the launch of the OBOP Round 2 in May, the participants underwent seminars on food safety and good manufacturing practices from the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Science and Technology, according to the city’s public information officer Irish Cubillan.
The city government, through the NavotaAs Hanapbuhay Center, made sure the barangays were equipped with the knowledge and knowhow on food preparation and presentation, she said.
“All barangays will still undergo trainings on packaging and labelling, branding, shelf life testing and microbiological testing to ensure the quality of their respective products,” the mayor said.
The OBOP entries were judged according to originality (25%), nutritional formulation of ingredients (20%), marketability (20%), taste (20%) and actual presentation of products (15%).
Other entries included fish longganisa of Barangay Bagumbayan North, fish shanghai of Bagumbayan South, tapa (lukba) of Daanghari, bottled sardines of Navotas East, and fish bangus balls of North Bay Boulevard (North).
