The Bukidnon Province in Mindanao Island is a rural area with one of the highest poverty levels in the Philippines. About 60 percent of the farm families live below the poverty line. Nonetheless, Buckidnon Province offers location and climatic advantages for the development of a high-value horticultural industry. Bukidnon Resource Company Inc. (BRCI) proposes to exploit the potential of the region by setting up a plant for the production of tomato paste. This paper studies the project from various points of view (BRCI, tomato growers, the economy)and illustrates the advantages that an integrated financial-economic-distributive approach brings to project evaluation.
