SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte, Aug. 8 (PIA) -- The Department of Science and Technology – Caraga (DOST-Caraga), through its Provincial Science and Technology Center – Surigao del Norte (PSTC-SDN), signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Lakeview Bakery on August 5, 2022.

The Memorandum of Agreement is for the project entitled “Productivity Enhancement and Product Quality Improvement of Lakeview Bakery through S&T (Science and Technology) Intervention” with an approved project cost amounting to P573,000.00 under the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP).

Lakeview Bakery is a duly registered single proprietorship business owned and managed by Mr. Alan Angelo L. Mozar. The proprietor has extensive experience and knowledge in sales, marketing, and management as he runs the bakery for almost three decades now. Mr. Mozar and his wife are active participants of the Mindanao WOFEX (World Food Expo) held annually. 

Their attendance started on the year 2001 but stopped in year 2020 due to the community quarantine and pandemic lockdown.

The firm availed of the DOST SETUP in  2014 with P1 million  iFund assistance for technology adoption of bakery equipment to boost the firm’s productivity and competitiveness. However, the existing equipment has already depreciated due to mass production of bread daily. With the continuous increase in demand, the firm recognized the need for technology upgrading to improve its overall operations. Thus, Lakeview Bakery sought for its second availment of SETUP iFund assistance from DOST.

During the MOA signing, DOST-Surigao del Norte and Lakeview Bakery pledged to extend their full support and commitment for the effective implementation of the aforementioned SETUP project.

SETUP enables firms to address their technical problems through acquisition and transfer of technology interventions. We are also inviting interested MSMEs in the province to avail of the SETUP Program.
