Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado said that the BPSTPC, which is the very first government-run packaging center in the Philippines, will be a very big help for micro, small and medium entrepreneurs in marketing their products globally and will also eventually generate jobs and income for Bulakenyos.
“We believe that we are here to serve the public to the very best of our abilities and continue to improve their lives and livelihood. Ang BPSTPC na ito ay isang proyekto na sumusuporta sa pagpapaunlad ng kabuhayan ng ating mga mamamayan at patuloy na magbibigay ng oportunidad sa ating mga kababayan na magkaroon ng pagkakakitaan,” Alvarado said.
The governor also expressed his gratitude to the Department of Trade and Industry Region III for the turn-over of its modern machines such as the Automatic Granular Packaging and Die Cutting Machine that are essential in providing better and more improved packaging services to the Bulakenyos as well as to the other entrepreneurs from different parts of the country.
Provincial Cooperative and Enterprise Development Officer Cynthia Abiol explained the services being offered by the packaging center including the improvement of new/existing label and packaging designs, label printing and product development.
BPSTPC also offers toll packing service wherein clients can use the packaging center’s machines and equipment for minimal fees. This includes the automatic granular packaging machine, shrink machine, retort machine, continuous band sealer and die cutting machine.
