Use PeduliLindungi if Buying Palm Cooking Oil

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – The application ‘PeduliLindungi’ is mostly used by the government, people, and business world in Indonesia to know information about Covid-19 vaccination. But by four ministries, the application ‘PeduliLindungi’ would be expanded to buy and sell bulk palm cooking oil.

From the official statement that InfoSAWIT got, Friday (24/6/2022), the government through Coordinator Ministry in Maritime and Investment, Coordinator Ministry in Economy, Ministry of Trade, and Ministry of Industry would start the transition of minyak goreng curah rakyat (MGCR) purchase and selling system.

The government would socialize it to the people. The system would be changed by making MGCR distribution to be more accountable and could be monitored from the producers to the consumers.

Coordinator Minister in Maritime and Investment, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said, after the socialization done, every seller and buyer of MGCR would use ‘PeduliLindungi” application. The people who do not download it, could still buy bulk palm cooking oil by showing ID.

“The program socialization would start on Monday (27/6/2022) and would last for the next two weeks. The people should show ‘PeduliLindungi’ application or ID when buying bulk palm cooking oil within the highest retail price (HRP),” Minister Pandjaitan said. The consumers can only buy up to 10 kg maximally for one ID per day. It would be sold at Rp 14.000 per liter or Rp 15.500 per kilogram.

MGCR within the price would be from the sellers or retailers that have been officially registered in SIMIRAH 2.0 application and also from Pelaku Usaha Jasa Logistik dan Eceran (PUJLE), such as, Warung Pangan dan Gurih.

Pandjaitan continued, the government is about to change the system to get certain supply, available supply, and affordable price of palm cooking oil in the society. ‘PeduliLindungi’ would function to be the field monitoring tool to mitigate the fraud, rareness, and expensive palm cooking oil in many places.

The government did many things to respond palm cooking oil price which took place since the past several months. What the government did, delivered outcome, such as, bulk palm cooking oil gets cheaper in some regions.

But Minister Pandjaitan urged, the monitoring about its distribution should always run. “I want that the distribution would reach the lowest level. Do not let happen that any region gets bulk palm cooking oil supply less than it needs. But everything takes some time,” he said. To confirm the socialization and transition running maximally, Minister Pandjaitan established taskforce to inform these new systems to the people.

The team would provide channels of information to serve the people when questioning or complaining about MGCR. The people could also access every information about the purchase and selling through social media which has been prepared.

He claimed, starting Monday, the people could access any information about these through instagram @minyakita.id and website linktr.ee/minyakita.

“These are the same efforts from the related ministries/institutions to analyze palm cooking oil issue. In the first place, it would need adjustment but I believe, the people would adapt fast with the new systems because the goal is for every one of us,” he said. (T5)
