Palmoilmagazine, PONTIANAK – After crude palm oil (CPO) and its derivative product ban was revoked, the smallholders’ fresh fruit bunch (FFB) price gets cheaper. This is very contradiction to CPO price which is stable in the globe.
Though in the few weeks FFB got better because the government implemented some strategies, such as, zero export levy.
To avoid FFB price manipulation in the field, Plantation and Livestock Agency West Kalimantan Province since 9 May 2022 launched and provides Whatsapp (WA) number about FFB price complaint at 0813 4933 0651.
From what Palmoilmagazine recently got, the number would be for the public to tell about FFB price that the mills would buy from any planter. What the smallholders would write in the WA would be evaluated and developed. “The monitoring and even would be delivering administrative sanction (if any mills ‘play’ with the FFB price decision) and would be sued based on the available regulation,” the agency told by WA.
