The Provincial Government of Pangasinan featured locally-made products and delicacies during the staging of Pamanang Yaman, Produktong Pangasinan (PYPP) in San Quintin on May 3-4 beside the Sangguniang Bayan Building.
A part of Abig Pangasinan, Governor Amado I. Espino III’s flagship recovery program, the PYPP focuses on helping local entrepreneurs, particularly micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) recover from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in their livelihood.
Through the PYPP, local products and delicacies are bought by the Provincial Government and are sold at their cost-selling or wholesale price.
PYPP also promotes Tatak Pangasinan products across the province through showcasing these products in the rolling store.
Among the Pangasinan-made products featured at the rolling store are: longganisa, tapa, tocino and other processed food; dried fish products such as daing; condiments like vinegar, bagoong, patis, and alamang; native snacks such as puto; chips, crackers, chicharon and other preserved delicacies.
