Previously, the government through the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan would begin the transition to changes in the sales and purchase system of people’s bulk cooking oil (MGCR). The government will also conduct outreach to the community.
This system change was made to make MGCR’s distribution management more accountable and monitored from producers to consumers.
The man who is often called LBP said that after the socialization period was over, all sales and purchases of MGCR would use the PeduliLindung application. Meanwhile, people who don’t have Care to Protect can still buy by showing their NIK.
Therefore, said Luhut, the purchase of MGCR at the consumer level will be limited to a maximum of 10 kilograms for one NIK per day and is guaranteed to be obtained at the highest retail price, which is Rp. 14,000 per liter or Rp. 15,500 per kilogram.
