INDUSTRY.co.id - Semarang - President Director of PT Nyonya Meneer Charles Saerang revealed that his legendary herb industry is hampered by herbs made from chemical raw materials.

"In 2015, we began to experience distribution disturbances," Charles said after a mediation hearing about the lawsuit against the salary of workers at the Semarang District Court in Semarang, Thursday (28/09/2017)

Since the rise of chemical herbs, he said, many distributors are frightened.

He questioned what really happened in the wake of the herbs mixed with the chemicals.

Responding to bankruptcy against the company that has been 98 years of standing, he admitted disappointed because this legendary company is only declared by one supplier of goods.

This company, he added, only experienced problems in the last 2 years.

"The company has a hard time, there's a happy time, no company has no debt," he said.

Nevertheless, he promised to revive Nyonya Meneer.

He admitted there are investors who are ready to invest, including national businessman Rachmat Gobel.

However, he expects the incoming investors will have the same "chemistry" about herbal medicine.

"It takes time, we do not want to 'marry', but there will be problems in the back," he said.

Regarding assets that are not in his control, according to him, the new Nyonya Meneer development will not have to be in the old place.

"It could be built in Kendal," he added.

Regarding debt repayment to creditors amounting to Rp280 billion, he said it was already the duty of the curator to finish it.

"It is the responsibility of the curator to be paid when the payment mechanism is the responsibility of the curator," he said. (Ant)
