Government to Scrap the Plan of Bulk Cooking Oil Ban


The Trade Ministry cancels the plan to ban the bulk sales of cooking oil or brandless cooking oil, initially planned to roll in January 2020. Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita stated that the bulk cooking oil would not get banned from the market. However, he hoped that the retailers would package their products before selling them.

Enggar said that the decision to lift the ban was to protect middle-to-low enterprises and consumers with low spending power. He also added that either bulk or packaged cooking oil price should not exceed the highest retail price (HET) at Rp11,000 per liter. Enggar also ensured that there would be no market raid to seize the bulk cooking oil from the market.
