According to market sources, the current state of affairs for the oil business is dismal. Following the imports, the state of small oil mills is currently deteriorating. Farmers do not offer them their oilseeds at bargain prices. Farmers are reluctant to sell at a lower price despite the fact that the current market price is higher than the minimum support price.
On the other hand, the quota system’s low pricing for duty-free imported oils has put pressure on domestic oil and oilseed suppliers to the point where farmers are growing increasingly concerned about their crop.
According to sources, instead of establishing self-reliance, all these factors appear to be moving the nation entirely towards dependence on imports. According to insiders, Indonesia has reportedly increased the difference between the export duty and levy on palmolein and crude palm oil (CPO) from the previous $60 to $68 in order to fund its oil sector.
