Philippine products from Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises are getting a marketing boost from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) OneSTore Ph platform.
The DOST launched on June 19, 2020, the reinvigorated OneSTore.ph, an online market for locally made goods. The project supports the #PinasMunaTayo movement that promotes local economic growth in the country by patronizing, buying, and supporting local businesses, products, and services.
According to the virtual presser of DOST, more than 360 micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are registered in the platform’s program. There are about 12,100 products available on the platform, a good fraction of which are in the food sector.
Further enabling employment amid the COVID-19 pandemic, OneSTore Ph is open for deliverer registration, opening employment for delivery people.
The OneSTore City app will enable easier and quicker transactions between buyers and sellers, as well as increase operations in more regions. It can be downloaded through QR code and will soon be available on Google Playstore.
OneSTore Ph is part of DOST’s efforts to assist the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP), in which they encourage and assist MSMEs in adopting progressive technological practices to further operations.
More online platforms helping small producers in the Philippines include Session Groceries, a Baguio-based app that delivers farm-fresh produce, and Homegrown Organics, a home delivery app that offers pesticide-free farm harvests.
