The Philippine Cinnamon Project is a two-year collaborative research project of the DENR and DOST-FRDI. Two project sites are considered for this study, namely: a) Mt. Labo, Brgy. Baay, Labo, Camarines Norte where a 20-hectare cinnamon plantation have been established in the CBFM area of the Bay Upland Farmers Association, Inc. (BUFAI) and b) Mt. Lantoy, Argao and Boljoon, Cebu, where cinnamon trading is a common practice. The study has three (3) major components: 1) bark stripping and callusing study; 2) market and value chain mapping; and 3) characterization of cinnamon oil. The Project is envisioned to provide a safe and sustainable bark extraction of cinnamon. This will harness cinnamon production as a potential enterprise for upland communities and thereby reducing importation of cinnamon bark from other countries. Read factsheet....
