Rhea Largoza started this petition to Local Government Units Philippines and

Average farmgate price of palay (unhusked rice) had dropped to as low as P7 per kg. due to the drop in farmgate prices and the influx of imported rice in the country.

We should prioritize the purchase of local rice rather than the imported ones and buy directly from local farmers. This will help them recover from their income losses and will be able to sell their produce at a more reasonable price.

The mandate to buy local rice should be implemented by the different local government units (Mayors) across all markets in the Philippines.

All warehouses should sell local rice first before selling imported rice to the market.

Let us help our farmers and their families. Let us be fair to their hard work and labor.
