InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Many sides wanted to improve fresh fruit bunch (FFB) governance. In the recent days, there was coordination meeting to revise the Regulation of Minister of Agriculture (RMA) Number 1 / 2018 about the Guidelines to Decide Fresh Fruit Bunch Price Produced by the Planters.
Vice Chairman of Indonesian Palm Oil Association (IPOA) in Public Policy, Susanto Yang said, from every issue discussed told, and urged to be added, IPOA knew that most of the issues relate to the independent smallholders which are not in partnership with palm oil plantation companies.
Susanto thought and suggested to publish a specific RMA to regulate independent smallholders’ FFB. “There are complex and complicated issues and related to many sides. That is why it needs a specific regulation,” he said to InfoSAWIT, Saturday (3/9/2022). (T2)
