Photos below show DTI Misamis Oriental Provincial Director Almer Masillones and barangay authorities of Mambuaya throughout the turnover of devices that include bamboo splitting maker, high speed strip preparation maker, glue finishing machine, and hot press device.
Amidst the increasing need of bamboo, an Engineered Bamboo Industrial Plant is now rising in Mambuaya, Cagayan de Oro City. And last March 5, 2021, some P2.4 million worth of processing equipment were turned over by the Department of Trade and Market (DTI) Provincial Office to the Mambuaya Integrated Social Forestry Farmers Association (MAISFFA) which will manage the center.
The development in the bamboo industry has been credited to several aspects including sustainability, less capitalization and shorter time to grow it. There is likewise a huge market for bamboo for furnishings as well as for river bank security not to point out the trending balsa fever in Misamis Oriental.
