VSU showcased technologies and products from its research and development activities at a technology exhibit organized by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD), March 2-4.   

The activity, dubbed as Strategic Industry S&T Program for Agri-Aqua Growth through the Farms and Industries Encounter through Science and Technology Agenda (SIPAG FIESTA), was held to better commercialize agri-aqua technologies developed in the country that can make farms productive and profitable.

Typifying a local fiesta in the Philippines where local goods are sold, the exhibitors, which are research agencies and academes, displayed science and technology products. VSU displayed food products that have high market demand in Leyte. These include the Tarroz wine made from taro and black rice, vacuum-fried and dehydrated jackfruit pulp, and chips made from cassava flour among other products.

SIPAG FIESTA was held at PCAARRD in Paseo de Valmayor, Timugan, Economic Garden, Los Baños, Laguna.
