FOR PISTA’Y DAYAT CELEBRATION
LINGAYEN—Planning on a food trip during the Pista’y Dayat celebration on May 1?
Go ahead and don’t worry about hygiene and safety.
Almost a hundred vendors applying for accreditation from the provincial government for the festival underwent a seminar on food safety and customer service at the Pangasinan Training and Development Center.
Bernadette Ramirez of the provincial government tourism operations division (TOD) said while there has been no recorded incident of food contamination in previous years, the provincial government wants the vendors to become “tourism-oriented and knowledgeable on food handling” to further promote tourism and avoid food contamination.
The seminar was conducted by officials from the Department of Science and Technology on food safety, the Department of Trade and Industry on price regulations, and the TOD on customer service.
