The Organic Agriculture Act of 2010 aims to strengthen organic agriculture in the country, however, Section 17 of the law states that only Third Party certified products can be labelled as organic and this puts long time small-scale organic farmers at a disadvantage. MASIPAG, being the first organization in the Philippines to adapt PGS through the MASIPAG Farmers Guarantee System, initiated the campaign for PGS recognition.
