INDUSTRY.co.id - Bandung - PT Tri Palma Indonesia as the exclusive agent of Automatic Hygienic Cooking Oil Platform (AMH-o), supports the package cooking oil program rolled out by the government. This domestically made product is 50% cheaper than other countries so it will not burden producers and traders.
Binsar Edward, Director of PT Tri Palma Indonesia, said AMH-o guarantees hygienic cooking oil in each packaging for Indonesian consumers in addition to providing benefits by reducing the use of plastics as well as ensuring distribution to remote corners of the country.
AMH-o is the solution to the issuance of the Republic of Indonesia Minister of Trade Regulation number 9 / MDAG / PER / 2/2016 which requires the distribution of bulk cooking oil using simple packaging bags to replace the current bulk oil distribution. Another benefit of AMH-o is the more economical distribution costs. Make better profitability at each stage of the distribution channel starting from manufacturers, distributors and retailers.
Binsar explained, the Automatic Hygienic Cooking Oil Platform was developed since last year through collaboration with PT Pindad and PT Rekayasa Engineering which is a subsidiary of PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), which is engaged in engineering services.
In this case, PT Pindad served as a manufacturing unit and PT Rekayasa Industri initially made a prototype unit design.
"Meanwhile, the marketing and distribution of the AMH-o unit is our authority (Tripalma)," he said in the inauguration of the AMH-o machine in Bandung, Saturday (September 15, 2018.

Enggartiasto requested the distribution of AMH-o machines to be handed over to the private sector. Firmly, he refused if PT Pindad (Persero) sold and distributed the AMH-o machine directly to retailers.
Therefore, Minister Enggartiasto appreciated the presence of PT Tripalma who became the distributor of this unit. In addition, distributors of cooking oil filling machines or AMH-0 should involve local entrepreneurs.
Binsar said, "We are ready to embrace local entrepreneurs, cooperatives, and MSMEs to become a sub-distributor of cooking oil platform machines.
