InfoSAWIT, PANYABUNGAN –In the last few days, the fresh fruit bunch (FFB) in some villages in palm oil factories in District of Mandailing Natal increases at Rp 1.900/kg.
It is the same with the better harvest. This makes the smallholders get excited. “In one last month, the price gets better, starting from Rp 1.500, then Rp 1.600, yesterday was Rp 1.800, and the last was Rp 1.900/kg," a smallholder, Rahmad Lubis said, as quoted frommedanbisnisdaily.com, Wednesday (22/11).
He also said, the better price is a gift when the daily needs get more expensive. The other smallholder, Supriadi also said, the FFB price in the smallholder’s level gets better though it is slightly different from the price in the factories.
“The different price is about Rp 200 to Rp 250/kg. It depends on the quality. It is normal for the cost to transport to the factories and others. But it is better for it could be used to fulfill the daily needs,” he said.(T3)
