LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The municipal government of La Trinidad, the strawberry capital of the country, assured that there will be adequate supply of strawberries amidst the damages caused by Tropical Storm Maring to the strawberry fields located right at the heart of the valley.
La Triidad Mayor Romeo K. Salda stated that the damages brought by the typhoon is still manageable that is why the supply of strawberries in the locality is still sufficient.
He added that they are optimistic that strawberry farmers will be able to produce quality strawberries in time for the expected peak season and for the possible conduct of the traditional Strawberry festival by March next year.
La Trinidad landed in the Guinness Book of World Records after it was able to present to the public the largest Strawberry Short Cake in 2004. A replica of the said shortcake is on display in front of the municipal hall for the appreciation of both residents and visitors alike. (ai/mtvn)
