In a triumphant year marked by growth and agricultural empowerment, the Coconut Farmers and Industry Development Plan (CFIDP) reached new heights during its Year 2 implementation. The nationwide initiative spearheaded by the Department of Agriculture – High Value Crops Development Program (DA-HVCDP) demonstrated its commitment to enhancing the lives of coconut farmers and boosting the coconut industry.

CFIDP’s impact has transcended across regions, reaching coconut farmers in every corner of the country. This national initiative has empowered local communities, diversified income sources, and elevated agricultural practices. With a focus on coffee and cacao intercropping, CFIDP has not only increased crop yields but has also contributed to the development of a more resilient and sustainable agricultural sector.

As we reflect on our achievements over the year and look forward to what’s next, CFIDP’s legacy is one of resilience, empowerment, and a vision for a coconut industry that flourishes in every corner of our diverse nation. The program stands as a beacon of transformation, making a lasting impact on a national level and ensuring a brighter future for coconut farmers throughout the country.
