Behind the name of every town and city of the Philippines, there’s a distinct product attached to it. Whenever you visit a place in the Philippines, chances are you’re going to bring home a product unique to that place. This is what the One Town, One Product (OTOP) is all about, to bring to the mainstream market products and services distinct to a Philippine town or city.

One Town One Product (OTOP) Philippines is a priority program of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to promote entrepreneurship and create jobs in the countryside. OTOP was adopted from the “One Village, One Product” (OVOP) project of the Japan and its success led to the adoption of the concept by Thailand, Vietnam, Malawi, Cambodia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

Through OTOP, local chief executives take the lead in identifying, developing and promoting a specific product or service, which is distinct to their locality and has a competitive advantage through the use of local skills and indigenous raw materials. Through OTOP, SMEs can avail of comprehensive package of services from the LGU, government agencies and private sector. These services are technical support, fund sourcing, branding and package design, business skills and access to markets both local and foreign.
