70 Palm Cooking Oil Industries Will Involve in Producing Minyakita

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – The expensive palm cooking oil in retailers hit low class people’s economy namely it is used to fry and one daily needs to be prepared in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, in few months, it gets much more expensive than highest retailer price that Ministry of Trade decided. That is why the government tries to stabilize palm cooking oil price.

One thing to do is by involving 70 palm cooking oil industries to provide it in simple package. It is also supported by 200 packers. “For those who want to involve in the program, Ministry of Industry would relax Indonesian National Standard (INS) for palm cooking oil industries that use MINYAKITA brand. If the companies are listed to provide palm cooking oil with the brand, we would accelerate INS process,” General Director of Agro Industry, Ministry of Industry, Putu Juli Ardika said, Tuesday (11/1/2022) as in the official statement.

To know the readiness of palm cooking oil industries to fulfill the people’s need, General Directorate of Agro Industry conducted work visit to some producers, such as, PT Salim Ivomas Pratama Tbk (SIMP) in Jakarta, PT Sinar Mas Agro Resources and Technology Tbk (SMART) in Bekasi, and PT Multimas Nabati Asahan in Serang, Banten.

He thought, Ministry of Industry got some inputs from them that the implementation should run well and right on target. “We do appreciate what they are committed and doing to fully support the government’s program to stabilize the price,” he said. (T2)
