Consumers Urged to choose Safe Food
Negros Summit delegates come together to discuss issues and concerns and share experiences and hopes to bring about significant social change. Negros Summit: International Solidarity Conference carries the theme “Food Sovereignty Beyond Borders.”
To lessen the risk of lifestyle diseases and to avoid the toxic effects of chemically-contaminated food, a group of experts urge consumers to patronize organically grown, chemical-free agricultural products.
Gilda Caduya, President of Alter Trade Corporation (ATC) disclosed that this was the consensus among Japanese and Filipino experts who were the resource speakers during the Negros Food Summit hosted by ATC in Bacolod City on November 7-8, 2015.
