Cebu’s best delicacies took the limelight during the opening day of the 82nd Philippine Veterinary Medical Association National Convention held recently in Cebu City.

Meat-based food products were showcased in the so-called “Kinamot Sa Sugbo” – a way of eating foods using bare hands.

Dr. Gerald Aycardo, President of the PVMA – Central Visayas Chapter, said the foods served were all Cebuano delicacies like lechon, chicharon, longganiza, chorizo, and hanging rice (puso), among others.

“We took pride with our delicacies and we will let the delegates experience how Cebuanos eat using bare hands”, he said.

Director Joel Elumba, DA-RFO VII’s OIC-Regional Technical Director for Research and Regulations, said the PVMA is one of the partners of DA in the implementation of livestock and poultry programs by providing inputs particularly on policy reviews, recommendations and updates leading toward promotion of agriculture-based products in the export market, protection of consumers from hazards of food contamination, animal disease control/prevention and animal welfare among others.

Mayor Michael Rama of Cebu City reminded the PVMA to exercise their profession with ethics. The activity was spearheaded by the PVMA-Central Visayas Chapter, Cebu City government, and the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office VII. (Lolita Maramara - rafis)
