Vegetable transactions at the trading center in Benguet continue despite the enhanced community quarantine.
The vegetable transactions continue at the Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trading Center (BAPTC) in La Trinidad, Benguet.
According to BAPTC, the facility is still open for vegetable trading operations to maintain vegetable supply in conjunction with the existing enhanced community quarantine throughout Luzon.
Today, highland vegetables are still allowed to be transported to Metro Manila but they have limitations due to the community quarantine being implemented.
At the same time, BAPTC strictly enforces rules such as social distancing and wearing a face mask within the facility.
BAPTC is considered the largest agriculture trading center in the nation.
