The Stakeholders Are Sorry for Packaged Palm Oil Revocation

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – In the recent days, the government through Ministry of Trade agreed to cancel palm cooking oil bulk in 2022 which was regulated in Regulation of Minister of Trade No. 36 / 2020 about Packaged Palm Cooking Oil.

Executive Director of Gabungan Minyak Nabati Indonesia (GIMNI) Sahat Sinaga told that the stakeholders are disappointed for the government cancelled palm oil bulk in 2022 by saying that the people could not afford to buy it because of Covid-19 pandemic.

In fact, Sinaga continued, the stakeholders have been waiting for too long that the regulation could be running since it was announced 8 years ago. They spent much to succeed the policy.

“We are sorry because many of our members (GIMNI) invested in packing machines. Really really sorry,” he said, as quoted from CNN Indonesia.

But Sinaga told that the stakeholders should obey the regulation and do anything. He continued, the stakeholders let the consumers choose if they want hygiene packaged or not packaged palm cooking oil. (T2)
