DTI‘s BAGSAKAN – Supporting Filipino Products – at the Glorietta Activity Center from 27 to 30 November, 2020, featured exciting food products, wines, textiles, and seashells!
The booths that caught my fancy included:
1. Kitchen Witchery – which has 7 varieties of vinegar under the Basimatsi line, a combination of “bawang, sibuyas, kamatis, and kalamansi.”
From the ordinary liso at P50 to the premium fermented chili at P150, to the spiced, sweet, ginger, smoked, and soy lime varieties.
You buy one bottle and you get three free sachets of the other kinds!
2. Hineleban Farms – whose premium Arabica coffee for P550 supports indigenous farmers and their mountain farms by sponsoring a tree!
I realized from the free taste shot that brewed coffee is less bitter than powdered coffee.
They have activated carbon caps at P550 and Yacon Syrup, a sweetener and supplement made of a kamote-like rootcrop, for P800.
3. Brics Ventures – whose Turmeric Brew is a 7 in 1 concoction of ingredients that include honey and malunggay and whose Slimariz Blended Coffee has white kidney beans, Turmeric Brew Plus, and green tea, just to name a few.
These two gourmet mixes are to be had at a steal just for this awesome trade fair event!
But no worries, they’re on Shopee and Lazada at regular prices.
4. Blue Macay Food – who sells not only special 3-in-1 spice bottles of your choice for P200, which can also be had individually at P75 per bottle, and their bestselling honey lemon ginger tea, but also Christmas meat products like hams!
