Fifty lined booths offered a variety of snacks and drinks for culinary lovers at the White Campus. The food bazar held by the Faculty of Agriculture's Student Executive Body (BEM) was in the FPP Festival 2019. The event was held for three days (23-25 / 4).
This year, the number of food sellers was more than the previous year which was only 30 booths. "This year, Alhamdulillah, there are fifty booths that have been filled. Not only from the student but also there is also a stand from the general public, "said Dyah Ayu Tasyakurani as the event's chairman when met on Wednesday (24/4).
Continued by a student of the Agribusiness Department, one of the concepts that would like to be presented at this annual event was the bazaar. This can be seen from the number of food that enlivened the bazar at Helyped UMM such as Mercon Meatballs, Kings Alpucok, Rujak Njerit, Jhony Japanese Martabak, and many more.
On the second day, the event was enlivened by 56 participants in the children's colouring contest. They came from ten kindergartens in Malang City. Whereas on the third day, the closing night, it will be enlivened with various appearances. Starting from the FPP band to Poetry Musicalization from the Sanggar Aksara Community (Sangkar).
"I hope this food bazar at FPP Fest 2019 can be an alternative culinary reference for friends. In the future, hopefully, FPP Fest will be better, more crowded, and what the friends want is truly conveyed through this event, "said Rachmaniar Anissa Putri as the event coordinator.

On that occasion, Prof. Rokhmin delivered a speech on "Development of Marine and Fisheries Based Technology 4.0 for Food Sovereignty and People's Welfare". He invited his students to actively play a role in increasing economic growth through the use of marine resources.
According to the former Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, the potential of the maritime economic sector was still not being used optimally to boost the economy. "You have to go directly to the real economy, one of which is optimizing the potential of the maritime economy to answer the challenges of the food needs of the world community," he said. (Win)
