Palmoilmagazine, JAKARTA – Prior, Minister of Trade, Zulkifli Hasan asked for palm cooking oil producers to succeed "minyakita" program in simple package at Rp 14.000/liter to sell.
Knowing this, Asosiasi Industri Minyak Makan Indonesia (AIMMI) claimed to support the program in Ministry of Trade to provide simple packaged palm cooking oil in 'Minyakita'.
Chairman of AIMMI, Adiwisoko Kasman said to fully support the program.
“This meeting was different. The minister was smiling at his face. This is outstanding. We are cooling down, no tension. Everyone here would fully support him. We would support and realize the simple packaged palm cooking oil program,” Adiwisoko said.
He continued, Minister Zulkifli Hasan’s plan to realize it, is right on target. “What he published is good. Every program mostly needs adjustment to develop,” he said, as in the official statement to Palmoilmagazine, Monday (27/6/2022).
But he needs to confirm that simple packaged palm cooking oil at Rp 14.000 should only be “Minyakita”.
"We have to be confirmed that it is the only one “Minyakita”. I would agree within the note, it has to be fully in Indonesian National Standard based on the regulation and that would be very good,” he said.
He also mentioned, it needs confirmation not to open the chance for others to make fraud and manipulate the price. “If the brand is in simple package, many persons could make it more expensive. If “Minyakita” is clear, who plays the fraud, should be taken for legal action,” Adiwisoko said. (T2)
