R.A. No. 11321, Sagip Saka Act

Principal Author and Sponsor

The law mandates both the national and local governments to purchase goods directly from farmers and fishermen for their respective programs and projects, thus eliminating the need for middlemen who usually profit more from transactions.

With the full amount going straight to them, farmers and fishermen can have higher income for their families. In addition, the law also helps ensure the country’s food security.
