TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Kalinga State University provided coconut processing equipment to residents of barangays Naneng and Bagumbayan, this city to boost their business venture.

The recipient communities are known for their inandila, a glutinous rice product cooked with coconut milk.

The equipment package consisted of coconut de-husker, coconut grater, coconut milk extractor, crop grinder, flour mill, and solar panel crop dryer.

Solomon Lao-aten of the College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT) said the assistance is under KSU’s Agricultural and Bio-system Engineering extension program.

He said the equipment were assembled and designed by their CEIT students.

Naneng residents and most of the province’s communities serve inandila during celebrations like weddings, festivals, and other occasions.  

With the new normal, Naneng and Bagumbayan declared to hold again their Inandila Festival which was cancelled during the pandemic.
