Government to Stop Bulk Cooking Oil Sales


The government will stop the bulk sales of cooking oil or unpackaged cooking oil on January 1, 2020. The Trade Minister, Enggartiasto Lukita, stated that the regulation was an effort to standardize the cooking oil products and protect the consumers from dangerous or unhealthy food at the same time.

The regulation will impose the cooking oil producers to package their product according to the standard set by the government, brand them, and add a label consisting of the product’s nutrient content. As for the producers with no packaging facility, the government is teaming up with PT Pindad dan PT Rekayasa Engineering to create an automated hygienic cooking oil machine (AMH-O). The producers do not have to spend any money on packaging. They only have to put the oil into jerrycans, label them with the brand and nutrient content, and send them to the nearest AMH-O to get distributed.
