To upgrade the fruit wine processing in the province of Kalinga, DOST (Department of Science and Technology) grants P200,000 financial assistance for the proposal of Nancy Busacay of Dagupan West.

Alfonso Berto, DOST Provincial Officer, said that the P200,000 financial assistance will be utilized in packaging, design and labeling of the product including the provision of a fermentation kit to improve the quality of fruit wine extracted from Bugnay fruit tree.

In addition, processing equipment will be given, which is expected in June, to help measure the alcohol, acid and sugar content of the product.

DOST, in cooperation with DTI (Department of Trade and Industry), also gave a new fermentation kit to the Mananig Bugnay Fruit wine industry.

And with the use of this new fermentation kit, test results conducted by DOST prove that the Mananig Bugnay Fruit Wine is stable and has passed the requirements to qualify as a wine product.

Mananig Group, DOST, DTI and the provincial government of Kalinga is working hand in hand towards mechanizing the winery industry in the province. [via pia.gov.ph]
