BS Entrep Students’ Galiang Food Production is Young Farmers Challenge 2022 Provincial Awardee

BS Entrep Students’ Galiang Food Production is Young Farmers Challenge 2022 Provincial Awardee

The Sorsogon State University (SorSU) proudly congratulates the BS Entrepreneurship students from Bulan Campus for being selected as one of the fifty-eight (58) awardees for the 2022 Outstanding Agri-Business Models under the Young Farmers Challenge (YFC) Program of the Department of Agriculture – Provincial Level.

Incoming seniors and business partners, Maria Lyra L. Escanilla, Carla D. Tan, Andrea C. Panelo, Raul G. Navarro, Jr. and Mary Joy G. Boribo, submitted their entry, the Galiang Food Production (GFP), and received PhP100,000 as start-up capital for their agri-business venture. They will be competing for the P150,000 Regional level award this October 2022.

The members formed GFP as part of the BS Entrepreneurship program requirement and more importantly, to develop, promote and support local products that will benefit the producers, consumers, community and the industry. They created an organic flour made of “Galiang”, commonly known as “Palawan” in Bicol or Giant Swamp Taro in English. The group plans to continue its research on how galiang can be further utilized and marketed as a food product. GFP believes that galiang flour can become a flour substitute and be able to compete in the food industry.

When asked about the YFC Program, the student-entrepreneurs said, “participating in the YFC program is a great challenge for us as this is our first time to compete, and at the same time, it is also an opportunity for us, Entrepreneurship students, to achieve our goals of having our businesses. We felt blessed, grateful and motivated. We felt that our efforts, commitment, passion and faith were recognized and appreciated. It is an honor to become a part of the YFC program and we promise to do our best to utilize the grant efficiently as our start-up capital for the Galiang Food Production business.”

In closing, the student-entrepreneurs “promise to pursue their goals to become successful business owners – and to become an inspiration to the youth to engage more in agri-business”.

SorSU congratulates Bulan Campus led by Campus Director Ma. Elena C. Demdam, Dean of BME Department, Dr. Diane V. Sales, the BS Entrep adviser, Prof. Ophelia G. Delmonte, together with Prof. Marilyn N. Inocentes, Mr. Santos Gigantoca and BS Entrep Program Chair, Ms. Abegail Arimbay, for their dedication and support to the degree program. The award serves as an inspiration and incentive to BS Entrep students to continually create research-based products sourced from the local communities for agri-business projects.

Sorsogon State University LUDIP

Sorsogon State University LUDIP


One of the significant accomplishments of the University in the present administration is the approval of the Sorsogon State University Land Use Development and Infrastructure Plan (LUDIP) for 2022-2031.

The LUDIP covers the future land use and infrastructure plans of the Sorsogon City, Bulan, Castilla, and Magallanes campuses. It is designed for long-term development projects incorporating structures and other land improvements to bring economic and social advancement and progress.

According to President Helen R. Lara, the LUDIP will serve as the University’s blueprint for allocating and mobilizing land resources and infrastructure in the next ten years.


Through this project, we were able to update, revise, and align SorSU’s present land use and infrastructure plan according to the requirements and prescription of Republic Act 11396 or the SUC LUDIP Act of 2019,” Dr. Lara added. 


RA 11396 requires SUCs to prepare and implement their LUDIP, which is a requirement for the approval of their future infrastructure projects. The LUDIP project includes the benchmarking and preparation of start-up working paper; development of survey materials; consultation with concerned stakeholders; conduct of sectoral studies; hiring of consultants; data assessment and analytics; projection, planning, and preparation of LUDIP documents; designing and re-designing of building perspectives; validation and finalization.
