“Salt is still bad performance. See it continues to rain, wet dry so it can not harvest the salt. These three months can not be production, but because of the weather so what can we do,” Dahlan said in Jakarta on Monday (22/7).
Dahlan stated that the manufacturer and distributor of salt salt production recorded a decrease to 40 percent due to weather uncertainty. In addition to salt, some sugar mills owned owned company also decreased production.
“If the sugar factory is still good, but not as good as planned. Farmers can not harvest cane, difficult and high cost of transport, wet mud and cane sweetness level is also declining,” said Dahlan.
Eating, Dahlan says, red plate sugar financial statements have not been better than last year. “Growth slumped 30 percent,” he said.
