1948 FAO Conference

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was established in 1945 in Quebec City, Canada, with the mandate of enhancing nutrition levels, living standards, agricultural productivity and rural living conditions.

A regional conference of the FAO was held at the Mansion, Baguio City from February 3 to March 17, 1948, to deal with rice, fishing and nutritional problems. On February 23, 1948,  the Bureau of Posts issued a four stamp set, produced by the Philippine Bureau of Printing, to commemorate the event.
