InfoSAWIT, IDI RAYEUK – The more expensive palm cooking oil managed the high inflation. This also forced the smallholders to urge the government to prioritize palm cooking oil or red palm oil mill construction compared to mini scale mill construction.
Chairman of Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Indonesia (Apkasindo), Sub district of Rantau Peureulak, Muslidar said, the smallholders actually urged that the both could be constructed to avoid jealousy among the smallholders from other regions. That is why it needs to prioritize red palm oil or palm cooking oil construction.
He thought, the smallholders need palm cooking oil mill because many mills are operating in East Aceh. He proposed it to President Joko Widodo because smallholders’ palm oil plantations in the region are potential and the widest ones in Aceh Province.
“The smallholders want to contribute to provide food material for the people by constructing palm cooking oil mill,” he said to InfoSAWIT, Tuesday (26/7/2022) and told that the proposal was also delivered to Chairman of Apkasindo Aceh, Sofyan Abdullah to be followed up to the (central) government.
