Chairman of the Association of Meatballs: Meatballs Home Industry Feels Better

Jakarta – Meatballs made readily available large-scale industry. Ranging from traditional markets, modern markets, until the restaurant. However, homemade meatballs cottage industry remains the most savory. Chairman of the Merchants Association Noodles and Meatballs (APMISO) Indonesia has a reason.

According to the Chairman APMISO Trisetyo Budiman, tasty meatballs least determined by the purity of beef used. For meatballs, commonly used secondary cut of beef, such as topside, knuckle, and rump. In fact, those who use the primary cut of meat like a cube roll or tenderloin.

Sure, the price is not cheap raw materials. Moreover, a good meat for meatball ingredients is minimal fat meat. In addition, the composition of which is true meatball is more meat than flour. “8-10 kg of meat at the most appropriate sagunya 4-5 ounces, half a kilo,” Tri said when met at the office detikfood APMISO (29.04.13).

This is where the point distinction meatballs from large industries and cottage industries, namely the composition of meat and flour. Tri argues, large industries that supply supermarkets to sell their products at a low price in order to sell. This is done by increasing the flour over the meat. “More comfortable home industry for daring to give the meatballs with 99% beef,” said Tri.

Tri confident cottage industry will be equivalent to the branded companies. “It is possible, because of the taste (cottage industry) win,” he said optimistically. However, Tri recognizes small businesses still lost the other factors.

An example is the ignorance of a good business location because they do not have access to the information. “If the silent branded’ve visited, emailed, in-fuel,” he said. And he lamented, serving 20% ​​of SMEs in the malls now only discourse. “Policy makers should be encouraged, to provide support to SMEs to the next grade,” he continued.

Tri alone has venture Meatballs Ino who had scattered in Jakarta and outside the city. Most of the home-based industry-made meatballs sold in stores Meatballs Ino. However, those that are sold at retail raw.

In Jakarta, the brand meatballs are quite popular cottage industry in the traditional market is Monalisa. In Bandung, there Midshipman and Meatballs Meatballs Cihampelas. Modern market that target the middle class is usually filled with names like Meatballs Meatballs Kebun Kusno and Orange, which, according to Tri relatively large-scale industry.

Soybean production RI Low, This explanation Kementan

Productivity of soybean in Indonesia is still relatively lacking. Per year, the total production of soybean Indonesia only reached about 600 thousand tons. Still far below the needs of up to 1.5 million tons / year. What causes it?

Head of Research and Development of the Ministry of Agriculture Haryono said, the lack of production of soybean is caused due to several factors. Therefore, soy is not going to be able to meet the self-sufficiency by 2014.

“Soy is the first difficulty for nothing. For the price, but thank God there is now Rp 7,000 COGS so farmers excited again although a bit slow,” Haryono said when met at the Central Bureau of Research and Development of Ministry of Agriculture, Jalan Ragunan, Pasar Minggu, Jakarta, Thursday (25 / 7/2013).

Haryono said, farmers had planted soybeans are less excited because the price is relatively lower than other commodities such as onion, garlic, corn, and other horticultural products.

In addition, continued Haryono, land issues were a major obstacle. Soybean plantations in Indonesia currently available only about 500 thousand hectares.

“Back then it was 1.2 million hectares, down by itself as competing with corn and others,” he explained.

Third, the lack of factors that affect the productivity of soybean in Indonesia is a seed. Seed and soybean crops vulnerable to pests and diseases.

“In general, soybean planting is more difficult than growing rice and corn. Due to many pests and diseases, rice can last 6 months, if soy just 3 months,” he said.
