Message

My warmest greetings and congratulations to the officials and staff of the Department of Science and Technology-National Capital Region (DOST-NCR) on your accomplishments and unflagging commitment in promoting science and technology (S&T) programs and providing technical services to our valued clients and the publics despite their very limited resources. In its initial operation as a separate office, DOST-NCR has demonstrated its excellent capacity to be a mover of science and technology (S&T) in the metropolis. Its presence and relevance bear the marks of quality service possible only from highly committed personnel who are willing to go out of their way to serve the public they are mandated to support. I laud DOST-NCR for successfully implementing S&T programs and promoting a culture of innovation among its clients and the public. Their strength is in building linkages and the good working attitude of its limited number of staff. I wish you all more productive years in S&T service!

2005 Annual Report

Message

I am proud to present the Accomplishments for CY2005 of the Department of Science and Technology in the National Capital Region (DOST-NCR). This report contains DOST-NCR's contributions in bringing into fruition the Department's goal to use science and technology as an engine of growth and well-being, especially for our countrymen in the region. We have accomplished the target we have set for various programs and projects, though limited resources available. In the past year, we were successful in carrying out the S and T activities of the Department, through job creation and increased productivity through S & T, among the small and medium and the micro enterprises. In 2005, DOST- NCR packaged and facilitated the release of PhP12.4 million pesos worth of direct technical assistance to different companies; with estimated gross value sales at PhP39.3 million pesos. DOST-NCR organized and conducted 12 technical training/ seminars for the industry sectors; in addition to holding a techno forum and consultative meetings with the academe. These activities, in effect, extended assistance to 104 firms/ MSMEs and sectors, benefiting a total of 457 participants. These accomplishments, however, would not have been possible without the strong support of the DOST management and its agencies. (once more proving that much can be done despite budgetary limitations if we work together and complement each other's strengths.) In particular, we would like to thank the DOST-NCR RTEC members who have continuously assisted us in the evaluation and review of projects in the region. We are also grateful to the Financial and Administrative Management Service of the DOST Central Office for their invaluable assistance to DOST-NCR operation. On a personal note, I would like to acknowledge my staff at DOST- NCR for consistently exhibiting good team work and strong commitment to S&T delivery. I am especially proud of their positive work attitude. I am confident that given this same winning attitude and our needed resources, DOST-NCR will notch further accomplishments, not only as an agency of the DOST, but as a strong ally of SMEs and of the budding scientists and entrepreneurs in the National Capital Region.

Small Enterprises Technology Upgrading Program

Food Sector ...Refreshingly New Tea Ventures…

Tea drinks nowadays are becoming popular in the Philippines because of its reported healthy benefits. That’s why Tea Ventures Company, Inc. (TVC) ventured into manufacturing tea drinks blended with colorful and delicious fruit juices. TVC products are packed in 2-L HDPE bags which are poured into “granita machines” where it is continuously chilled, blended and sold in 12 to 16 ounce glasses with the brand Teazers. The company began sometime in 1995 with its first outlet in Glorietta, Ayala Center and then expanded to 15 more market outlets in famous universities, and malls.

Water Softener one of the nine equipment acquired by Tea Ventures Company through SETUP intervention.

Before DOST’s intervention, the company was experiencing problems on short product shelf life due to low filling and sealing temperature; limited production capacity and high fuel cost due to longer time cooking; high product wastage due to spillage and spoilage; limited distribution reach and frequent and high delivery cost due to short product shelf-life.

Tea Ventures Company also acquired Steam-Jacketed Kettle through SETUP intervention.

When TVC learned about DOST-SET-UP’s assistance, Ms. Anna Maria Alcantara, General Manager of TVC did not waste time. She met with DOST-NCR staff to complete the requirements to avail of SET-UP’s support. DOST-NCR and its RTEC members provided technical assistance and technology needs assessment.

With SET-UP’s intervention, the company was able to acquire Steam-Jacketed Kettle, Holding Tank , Sanitary Pump and Piping, Air Valve Fillers with Foot Switch, Steam Boiler , Water Softener, Continuous Sealer, and Stainless Steel Cooling Tub amounting to P750,000. With the acquisition of this equipment, product stability and quality was improved by following proper processing temperature and reducing product handling thus extending product’s shelf-life. Problems on spillage, spoilage and high fuel cost are now a thing of the past. Now the company is closer to its dream of seeing its products sold in ready-to-drink 500ml bottles, thereby allowing them to reach and serve wider market base. Tea Ventures is now considered “DOST-enabled” company.

Food Sector … Originally Filipino Unique and Delectable Taste of Polvoron in the House of Polvoron…

MOTZ Food Products (MFP) started off as a backyard business with a two-man team in 1988, selling unbranded polvoron in small volumes. In its effort to gain ground in the high competitive snack food market, the company sought DOST’s assistance on packaging and labeling in 2002. Consequently, MFP launched its branded polvoron line, “House of Polvoron (HOP)”. With the new packaging and labeling, HOP is gradually gaining recognition in both domestic and international market. In 2003, the first House of Polvoron mall outlet opened in SM Megamall. Since then, Motz Food Products was continuously assisted by DOST-NCR through trade fairs, training on Good Manufacturing Practices, technical and consultancy services and just recently, a seed fund for the acquisition of equipment and machineries for the mechanization of MFP’s production. Ms. Charlotte Caliwara, Assistant General Manager of MFP also sought SET-UP’s assistance to be able to upgrade the company’s production and packaging process from manually to fully-mechanized operation by acquiring kettle with scraper type mixer, molder, automatic band sealer, ribbon mixer and shrink packaging machine. The new equipments are helpful in standardizing MFP’s production process thus improve the quality and shelf life of its products. Motz Food Products is currently selling its products in different variants and flavors – pinipig, cashew, pili, walnuts, cookies and cream, chocolate and assorted flavors in more attractive packages. The House of Polvoron can now be seen in SM Megamall, SM Southmall and Glorietta and envisions opening more market outlets in the near future.

Food Sector …Crispylicious Filipino Snack Food - Making it World’s Favorite…

Toscano-Soriano

Trading (TST) started in

1985 with a capital of P50,000 as a repacking business for snack food items such as polvoron, pastilles and assorted candies. They later experimented on producing dried dilis and squid which became bestsellers and made the Toscano brand “Seakid” popular. Eventually Mr. and Mrs. Toscano concentrated on food processing. With increasing demand for their products, Mrs. Elizabeth Toscano realized the need to expand and improve their production thus they sought for expert’s advice. In 2004, the company became a recipient of DOST-TAPI’s Manufacturing Productivity Extension Program (MPEX) which assists small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector to attain higher productivity. MPEX consultants conducted a productivity needs assessment and observed that the workers were not strictly following good manufacturing practices and the production equipment such as big frying pans poses safety risk for their workers. The company also needed a lot of improvements in their processing and packaging methods in order to improve its product quality and consistency. Through MPEX, the workers of TST were trained for 5S and Good Manufacturing Practices. Improvements from these trainings are visible in the factory and office. The next step was to upgrade the production equipment of the company. This is where the DOST-Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SET-UP) came in. DOST-NCR facilitated the acquisition of Oven, Cooker/Mixer, Dryer/Dehydrator, Dehumidifier and Vacuum Packing Machine Sealer through a P839,000 assistance from DOST-SET-UP. The cooking equipment improved the consistency of the products and prevented oil spills and accidents. The Dryer/Dehydrator achieved consistent drying of raw materials and avoided contamination from dust and dirt as compared to their previous sundrying technique. The vacuum packaging machine helped retain the crispiness and quality of the products thus extended the products’ shelf life. Today, the products of Toscano-Soriano Trading are sold in major groceries, supermarkets and convenient stores in Metro Manila. They are also exported through regular exporters/consolidators. The company also plans to export its products directly in the near future. However, to be able to do this, the company needs to obtain a HACCP certification. With the help of DOST-NCR, the managers and staff of the firm were trained with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and Introduction to Shelf Life Studies. And now, the company is currently working for its HACCP certification. Acquiring its HACCP certification will surely give TST a competitive advantage in the domestic market and will enable them to conquer the export market.

Food Sector …Boosting the production capability of a micro enterprise…

Marisa’s

Food

was

established

sometime in September 2000 when Marisa del Rosario-Demin took the challenge of entrepreneurship in food industry. It started when Marisa was still assisting her mother in small catering/canteen business in Bulacan. Enticed by the growing business of her mother, she was compelled to attend short courses related to food business. Later, she decided to put up her own business. She ventured into atchara (pickled papaya), peanut butter and bagoong isda manufacturing. Out of her product line, atchara soon become popular to her friends and neighbors that she concentrated producing it. The production was just intended for her very small market until such time that she had been contracted by one of the biggest bakeshops (Red Ribbon Bakeshop) in the country to supply atchara to them. Marisa’s Foods supplies at least 200 kilograms of atchara weekly to the bakeshop chain. With its growing market, Ms. Demin sought the assistance of DOST to upgrade her conventional method of manufacturing atchara. And through DOST-SETUP, Marisa’s Foods was given assistance to acquire equipment to boost its production capacity and accommodate the increasing demand of atchara in the local market. In addition to the equipment namely, hydraulic shop press and vegetable preparation machine, Ms. Demin underwent training on Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) conducted by DOST. She was also given technical assistance to improve its production process and product quality by the ITDI’s Food Processing Division. Hydraulic shop press acquired by Marisa’s Foods through SETUP intervention.

Food Sector …Mechanizing Ice Tea Production to Meet International Standards...

Established in 2003, Marventure Corporation ventured into manufacturing and selling of iced tea concentrates and ready to drink iced tea with the brand “Allmytea”. In the same year, the company acquired DOST-ITDI’s service on product specification and nutritional analysis. Since the market trend is moving on the natural and healthier side, Allmytea is gaining acceptance in the consumer market. But because the company still applies the manual process of production, it has a limited production capability. Thus, it cannot supply the supermarkets and groceries nor satisfy the increasing market demand. Tea extractor with press and water acquired by Marventure Hearing about DOST- Small Enterprise Technology treatment Corp. through SETUP intervention. Upgrading Program (DOST-SET-UP), Ms. Janice L. Buenaventura, Operation Manager of Marventure Corporation approached DOST-NCR for help. Since the company is new, DOST-NCR and RTEC members conducted a technology needs assessment for Marventure to determine the technology needs of the company.

Marventure Corp. acquired boiler through SETUP intervention.

With DOST SET-UP’s assistance amounting to P883,000.00, the company was able to acquire 2 units steam jacketed kettle, hydraulic fruit extractor, boiler, tea extractor with press and water treatment with accessories. The new equipment was essential in standardizing the production process of Marventure. What’s more, the cooperator was trained on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Shelf Life Studies of Food Products. The company is currently working on its shelf life studies – the first step in meeting international standards.

Through DOST’s intervention, the company expects to increase its production volume by 35%, improve product’s quality and increase its sales and eventually tap the export market.

Food Sector …Having the Right Technology……

So

all it takes is good product, a great

package, creative marketing, and a competitive price to run a successful and profitable enterprise? You may be a whiz at marketing, but this is simply not enough to be a whiz at business. This was a lesson learned by FilChoice Food Industries, Inc. The company knew from experience that staying ahead of the competition and generating new clients meant having the right technology and equipment. Founded in 1998, Fil-Choice Food Industries, Inc. is engaged in manufacturing of sweet fruit preserves, condiments, bottled fish, and seasonings. The company is primarily exporting its products to USA, Canada and UAE. It is currently servicing 12 distributors in the export market. In order to maintain the trust and satisfaction of its customers and with the stricter standard requirements of the importing countries, the company sensed the necessity to upgrade their process and acquire the appropriate equipment for their production. Since then, Fil-Choice has been actively visiting DOST-ITDI to seek for new developments and improvements for their process and operation. Upon learning about SETUP, the company did not hesitate to ask the help of DOSTNCR. With the help of its RTEC members, DOST-NCR assessed the technology requirements of Fil-Choice.

Furniture Sector ... Increasing capability through equipment acquisition‌

Year 2000 started a new market trend for Concepts Trading Corporation as the trend towards globalization greatly affected the Philippine carpet industries due to dumping of cheaper imported products. This is due to lower tariff imposed upon imported products and the raw materials are petrochemical based, which the country does not have, therefore, commands relatively high cost to local buyers and producers as well. In this respect, with such high value of raw materials for carpets, Concepts Trading Corporation looked for alternative raw materials. And the utilization of indigenous products such as tinagak/abaca fiber to be mixed with acrylic, nylon, and similar mixture could provide better advantage for the company as well as for the Philippine carpet industry in this global trend competition. With the indigenous materials like abaca and tinagak, which are promising and excellent materials for the production of fibercraft products for carpet, the company could find high-end markets abroad. To tap the high end market the raw materials should also be of good quality. In order to produce consistent sizes of abaca and tinagak farmed out from suppliers in the village and provinces, acquisition of appropriate machineries is needed by the company. Without the production machines, the layering of the rope, Concepts Trading Corporation acquired rope twisting, and winding of the abaca and tinagak are making machine through SETUP intervention. done manually. Thus Concepts Trading sought the assistance of SET-UP for the acquisition of 1 unit layer rope making machine and 1 unit twisting machine. Now the preparation of the raw materials is currently being done by Concepts Trading using the said machine. In doing so, production time is reduced as well as saved on overhead costs. Now, share in the export market for fibercraft products (using native abaca and tinagak) became possible for the company. The high-end markets that include US, Europe, and Japan are the consumers seeking natural fiber as the primary component for carpet related products i.e. tapestries, murals and other art pieces. There are also substantial markets abroad for carpet with component of indigenous materials, and this is what the company looks forward to have access to.
