DOT, Cloud Panda PH launches PHL Harvest e-commerce site

Online shoppers can now enjoy varied Philippine flavors, quality-sealed fresh and processed food selections, and other essentials all under one platform which provides a seamless shopping experience for the customer.

This after the Department of Tourism (DOT) launched the Philippine Harvest e-commerce site, accessible via phharvestdot.com, in partnership with IT solutions company Cloud Panda PH recently.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat encouraged the public to maximize the use of the internet by supporting local businesses.

The new e-commerce site is a stand-alone online platform that aims to promote Philippine culture through food that is local, organic, artisanal, and indigenous, and to alleviate the economic impact brought by the pandemic to the local farmers and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the country.

Philippine Harvest products can also be delivered by the merchants straight to the customer, making culinary experience more obtainable to every Filipino household.

All partner-merchants will have access to the business tools available in the online platform. They will also be provided with their respective accounts for order tracking, inventory management, product catalogues, and links to their social media sites, among others.

“Cloud Panda has been developing applications and software that provide assistance to businesses. We are happy to be working with them now more than ever, knowing that they will help us strengthen the Philippine Harvest initiative in making Philippine-made produces readily available to the Filipinos,” Puyat added.

“Our country’s agricultural harvest is considerably vast, it only needs an effective channel to reach the right consumer, and I believe the technology that we have today can help us achieve that goal,” Cloud Panda PH Co-founder Carlito Macadangdang said.

“I believe that Philippines harvest initiative is the right path in moving people and produce towards a common goal, to help feed the economy during these trying times,” Cloud Panda PH Co-founder Jonathan So added.

The DOT’s Philippine Harvest started its online leg on April 22 through its Facebook page at facebook.com/PhilippineHarvest, and was also made available via Grab Philippines on July 6.

We invite everyone to support our farmers and small business owners by buying locally-made organic and artisanal products at phharvestdot.com.
