Chairman of Special Legislators of Subulussalam Urged to Make FFB Price Monitoring Team

InfoSAWIT, SUBULUSSALAM – Chairman of Special Legislators of Subulussalam, Ade Fadly Pranata Bintang urged the regional government of Subulussalam to make a special team to monitor fresh fruit bunch (FFB) price in the region.

This should also involve smallholders’ associations when FFB price is not stable.

He said, the team should also monitor FFB price produced by the independent smallholders in the mills in Subulussalam. The team should also connect to FFB price monitoring team from Aceh Province.

“The team should work to monitor FFB price in the mills. The team should connect to FFB price monitoring team from Aceh Province. The price was published but the question remains, why could not the mills run the decision?” Fadly said after conducting hearing in the hall of Subulussalam Special Legislators, Wednesday (8/6/2022).

He thought, the price monitoring team is regulated in the Regulation of Minister of Agriculture Number 1 / 2018.

“In specific, it is in the Regulation of Minister of Agriculture. But I think, it is time for us to make the team in our region knowing that this is the biggest crude palm oil (CPO) producer in Aceh,” he said.

In the hearing, he got many complaints from the smallholders about the cheap FFB that many mills bought.

The Provincial Government of Aceh published documents about FFB price decision with the mills’ managements in the southern west of Aceh Province. But in fact, FFB price was not the same with what provincial team decided.

Fadly also mentioned, in this very short, the Legislators would make special committee to investigate it to get the solution why it happened.

“Subulussalam Special Legislators would always exist to solve what the people faced. We hope, the smallholders would not get loss for the FFB price by the mills,” he said. (T3)
