InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Wilmar fully supports the Filling MachineAnjungan Minyak Goreng Hygienist Otomatis (AMH-o) inaugurated by Minister of Trade, Indonesia, Enggartiasto Lukita, on Saturday (16/9/2018) in Bandung. The cooking palm oil filling machine is designed to implement the Regulation of Minister of Trade, No. 9/M-DAG/PER/2/2016 that obliges cooking oil distribution in simple packaging.
Director of Technic, Wilmar, Erik Tjia said, Wilmar appreciates the policy that the government published to converse palm oil in simple packaging. “This is important conversion to guarantee the hygiene and the quality of palm oil itself so that the people could get easier access to the safe and secure products to be consumed,” Erik said.
The AMH-o was the result of cooperation between PT. Pindad and PT. Rekayasa Engineering which is the subsidiary of PT. Rekayasa Industri (Rekind). It is designed to distribute cooking oil in jerry can in 18 or 25 liters to the smaller packaging in 250 milliliters (ml), 500 ml, and 1.000 ml.
It is hoped, the machine could nationally help the people to fulfill the more hygienic cooking oil and could increase the retailer margin profits. Erik also told, the machine could maintain the hygiene and reduce plastic bag to be more environmental.
It is planned that the cooking oil filling machine could be nationally distributed to many regions. “The machine could help the cooking oil distribution better if it exists in many regions and there would be fair distribution in palm oil for the people of Indonesia,” Erik said.(T2)
