DTI Launches Coffee Shared Services

DTI Launches Coffee Shared Services

The Department of Trade and Industry or DTI launches coffee shared services facility (SSF), the first of the 1,000 SSFs with a budget allocation of P700 million to be established within the year to boost the competitiveness and productivity of micro, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the countryside.

DTI Undersecretary Merly Cruz said the SSF would be located in Tabuk City, Kalinga for the coffee cluster in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR). The launch is slated on Wednesday, January 16 (Business Bulletin p.1 January 13, 2013).

Shared services refers to the provision of a service by one part of an organization or group, that is the coffee industry, where that service had previously been found in more than one part of the organization or group. Thus the funding and resourcing of the service is shared between the members of the industry and the providing department effectively becomes a service provider for all of its members. Thewill minimize the costs for each member of the industry

Coffee is one of our home grown agricultural products in the country.  It faces stiff competition in the world market especially Latin America. The Government program of shared services facility (SSF) through the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will             augment the productivity and competitiveness of micro industry.  This program once implemented in full scale will generate more employment and revenue. Prioritizing small and medium enterprises (SMES) is indeed a good strategy to enhance faster           development   in the countryside.
