Minister Promises Export Quota to CPO Producers Who Support 'Minyakita' Program

28 June 2022 13:15 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Trade Minister Zulkifli Hasan asked palm oil producers to support the 'Minyakita' program. He said he would provide CPO export quotas for producers who help the government prepare the simple packaged cooking oil program.

"As compensation, we will give CPO export quotas to palm oil producers who support the cooking oil in simple packaging program," Zulkifli said through the ministry's official statement, Monday, June 27.

Zulkifli said that resuming export would raise producers' needs for CPO, which will increase the absorption rate of farmers' fresh fruit bunches by producers.

He said the policy could also improve palm fruit prices. However, according to him, domestic needs will still be prioritized. "There is a scheme that will regulate it," he said.

Zulkifli also asked entrepreneurs and cooking oil producers to buy smallholder palm oil at a price of at least Rp1,600 per kilogram, as decided by the government during a meeting with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment Affairs.

Meanwhile, the Indonesian Edible Oil Industry Association chairman Adiwisoko Kasman said they support the 'Minyakita' program. However, he said that the product must comply with the Indonesian National Standard. He also asked that the policy is only applied to the Minyakita product—not commercial brands—to prevent fraud or price manipulation.
