Jakarta Governor, Anies Baswedan ensures food stock in Jakarta is sufficient for Ramadan Month and Eid 1440 Hijri.
" Staple food stock in Jakarta is safe thus the price remains affordable"
Jakarta Government via Jakarta Inflation Control Team (TPID) has prepared the stock well ahead of Ramadan Month and Eid.
"We have held special meeting with TPID. Staple food stock in Jakarta is safe thus the price remains affordable," he asserted, Sunday (5/6).
He considered three Jakarta Regional-Owned Enterprises (BUMD)s in food sector; Perumda Pasar Jaya, PD. Dharma Jaya, and PT. Food Station Tjipinang Jaya can do their job well to ensure food commodities at fair prices.
For information, on Thursday (4/18) Cipinang Rice Central Market (PIBC) stored 43,355 tons of rice. This amount is considered sufficient for Ramadan Month and Eid because rice demand and supply are still stable around 3,000 tons per day.
In the other hand, PD. Dharma Jaya has 600 tons of meat for Ramadan Month and will add another 200 tons in the mid of May.
