KADIWA stores sold rice at P29 per kilo in Metro Manila

In an effort to lower retail rice prices in the country, the Department of Agriculture (DA) is implementing the KADIWA Program by establishing KADIWA Centers across Metro Manila.

According to a news release on Sunday, the DA announced that these centers offer rice at PHP 29 per kilo in select areas, along with other basic necessities and prime commodities (BNPCs) at lower prices, such as fish, eggs, onions, garlic, fresh vegetables, and fruits.

The PHP 29 per kilo rice is available at the following locations:


  • ADC Building of the Department of Agriculture - Central Office in Quezon City
  • KADIWA Center inside the Bureau of Plant Industry in Malate, Manila
  • KADIWA Store - Llano Road in Barangay 167, Caloocan City
  • KADIWA Store, AMVA Housing, La Mesa Street in Barangay Ugong, Valenzuela City
  • KADIWA Center, PhilFIDA Compound, Aria Street, Talon Dos, Las PiƱas City

The DA stated that each household can purchase up to five kilos of rice from KADIWA Centers, subject to availability. The supply of rice is influenced by factors such as transport, packaging, and logistics.

The sale of rice at PHP 29 per kilo will continue as the government aims to produce more than 100 million kilos of rice by August this year through contract farming agreements with Farmers' Cooperatives Associations (FCAs).

Currently, there are 265 regular KADIWA stores nationwide and 119 KADIWA pop-up stores that operate on a scheduled basis to meet consumer demand.

KADIWA provides farmers, fisherfolk, and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with venues to sell their produce and facilitates market linkages. By removing unnecessary layers in the trading cycle, KADIWA helps offer products at significantly lower prices.
