THREE establishments will hold a mobile market for all barangays in Mandaue City beginning Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
In an interview, Mandaue City Councilor Malcolm Sanchez said the three establishments presented to them for the mobile market are Ali Agri Exim Corp., Colonnade Supermarket and Mandaue Chamber of Commerce Inc. (MCCI).
The idea was from the three establishments and is backed by the city of Mandaue.
“Instead of people going to the market or to the supermarket, what we do now in the city of Mandaue is to bring the products near to the people,” said Sanchez.
Ali Agri Exim Corp. will start and operate its “Manok Caravan” on Wednesday.
The whole chicken is worth P110 regardless of the kilo, the liver is P110 per kilogram, the gizzard is P105 per kilogram, the intestine and legs are P50 per kilogram, the head is P10 per kilogram and the butsi (chicken crop) is P65 per kilogram.
“They can save up to P30 to P40,” Sanchez said.
They will operate in a different barangay every day, starting with Brgy. Paknaan.
Sanchez said they have yet to determine when Colonnade and MCCI will start.
Colonnade will sell basic grocery items while MCCI will sell meat in coordination with Virginia Food Inc.
Once MCCI will start its operation, Sanchez said that it may join the caravan of the Ali Agri Exim Corp.
Sanchez will also tap the barangay captains for the information dissemination and to announce to their constituents regarding the caravan.
Sanchez added that the barangays can request if they want the caravans and mobile markets to sell in their barangay for another round.
The mobile market does not limit how much each customer should purchase. (KFD)
