About BAMBUsaPINAS

BAMBUsaPINAS, Inc. (BsaP) is a Philippine corporation positioning bamboo as a sunrise agro-industry to effect inclusive Philippine economic growth. For this goal, BsaP is establishing Pugo Bamboo Center (PBC) in La Union province as a demonstration farm, primary processing center and hands-on training facility for bamboo cultivation and processing in North Luzon.

BsaP seeks to replicate the immensely successful China development model. This strategy increased the land area under bamboo cultivation in China from 100,000 ha. in the mid-1980s to over 7,000,000 ha. today, energizing China’s rural economy. The period also saw over 3,000 finished products emerge from bamboo raw materials, earning billions of foreign exchange for the nation’s coffers and creating millions of sustainable jobs and new millionaires. During that growth era, BsaP President, Romualdo L. Sta. Ana, served as a member of the Board of Trustees of the International Network of Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR), one of the agencies responsible for the bamboo miracle. Sta. Ana has also performed international consultancy engagements under United Nations (UN) auspices.

By establishing PBC, BsaP hopes to awaken Filipinos to the potentials of bamboo, providing basic knowledge and hands-on training on its cultivation. PBC also emphasizes and showcases the full utilization of both poles and shoots to minimize production costs and improve profit margins for planters and processors. At Pugo, BsaP already has seedling nurseries, charcoal-making kilns, pole-treatment tanks and a training center, as well as a primary processing center (PPC) to transform poles into immediately usable commercial bamboo components for basket weavers, furniture makers, shelter builders, handicraft industries and many other applications.
