JAKARTADAILY.ID - In order to support domestic demand for cooking oil, Musim Mas Group will supply 13.03 million liters of cooking oil in collaboration with its subsidiaries.

The group's general manager Togar Sitanggang said it would carry out the distribution through market operations and distributors in local regions so the commodity can reach people directly.

"The company supports the DMO-DPO policy so that people can equally buy cooking oil at affordable prices," Sitanggang said in a written statement in Jakarta, Sunday, February 20, 2022. "In addition, we will play an active role in supporting government policies."

The group will conduct market operation activities alongside agencies such as local governments and the department of industry/trade so that the cheap cooking oil is received by the right target population.

Since January 22, 2022, Sitanggang said the company had distributed cheap cooking oil to various regions in Indonesia, such as Greater Jakarta, Java, Bali, Sulawesi, and several areas on the island of Sumatra. It will continue to distribute 13,038 million liters of cheap cooking oil until March 2022.

According to Sitanggang, the distribution will later be carried out through its subsidiaries including PT Musim Mas, PT Sukajadi Sawit Mekar, PT Maju Aneka Sawit, PT Globalindo Alam Perkasa, PT Indokarya Internusa, PT Intibenua Perkasatama, PT Mikie Oleo Nabati, PT Wira Inno Mas, PT Agro Makmur Raya, and PT Megasurya Mas.

The company continues to make various efforts to accelerate the distribution, one of which is by selling more cooking oil than regular to modern retailers.

Sitanggang said packaged cooking oil products distributed by the company have their own market in the community. Most of them are sold in traditional markets.

Currently, the company is formulating a method so that traditional market traders can still get cooking oil from the company. The sale can be taken into account in fulfilling the DMO.

"Market traders who do not have a Business Identification Number (NIB) are one of the challenges in distributing cheap cooking oil as a DMO requirement," Sitanggang said. "They must have NIB so that it can be entered into the INSW (Indonesia National Single Window) system. We are trying to make shops in the market directly obtain cheap cooking oil."

It is hoped that market operations carried out with government help at the district/city to provincial levels that are distributed directly to the community can be included in the DMO category, as the amount is quite significant.
