Attn:Mr. Val Palanca


Re: HB 2513


Sir:


We propose to define who are included in the definition of food establishment . Are carinderia, turo turo , food stall and similar micro food establishments exempted from the coverage of the law. For these units, there are no menu table and the implementation of the bill may not be practical or realistic.


We also propose to provide that it is mandatory for all food establishment covered by the bill to include in their menu the item “ half cup rice “ or “ half bowl rice”, as are applicable for individual or group orders.


We also propose that the local government units should be the implementing agency of the bill.


Finally, the bill should provide no less than three ( 3)months extensive information and education campaign of the bill. In this matter, all stakeholders like the Hotel and Restaurant Association , Food Cart Association and consumer associations should support the program provided in the Bill.



Thank you for the opportunity to submit the position of Laban Konsyumer Inc.






Very truly yours,


Atty. Victorio Mario A. Dimagiba, AB, LLB, LLM
