4 July 2022 13:28 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Industry Ministry recorded that as of July 1st, 130 companies have registered with the Bulk Cooking Oil Information System or Simirah 2.0. Simirah is a digital technology system for managing and supervising the distribution of bulk cooking oil.

Of the companies that have registered, 51 are CPO producers, of which 24 have received registration numbers. The remaining 79 are Palm Cooking Oil (MGS) producers, of which 74 have received registration numbers.

The ministry's director general of agro-industry Putu Juli Ardika said on Monday that no producers were rejected. "Of all that registered, none were turned down. As for those that still haven't gotten their registration number; [their applications] are still being verified or [they are in the process of] completing the data required," he said.

The Industry Ministry noted that throughout June the bulk cooking oil program's distribution rate averaged 81.72 percent of the monthly needs of each province. Throughout June, producers distributed 268,000 tons of bulk cooking oil.

"Raising the volume CPO and cooking oil exports can be done by fast-tracking the domestic distribution of DMO-DPO including in the form of packed bulk oil," said Putu.

Putu said that the government guarantees the availability of bulk cooking oil at the highest retail price (HET) of Rp14,000 per liter or Rp15,500 per kilogram. The government, he added, also facilitates retailers who want to sell bulk cooking oil.
