The Jakarta regional inflation control team (TPID) is focused on maintaining the stability of food prices, especially chili ahead of Eid al-Adha.
" We use this machine as chili is easy to rot and there are obstacles in the supplier areas"
City's Economic and Finance Division Assistant, Sri Haryati said that several strategies have been prepared, including by optimizing the function of the controlled atmosphere storage (CAS) machine and intensifying urban farming.
"We use this machine as chili is easy to rot and there are obstacles in the supplier areas," she expressed, Tuesday (8/6).
This is because according to the central statistics agency (BPS)'s data, the highest contributor to inflation was red chili, which was around 0.1247 percent.
Her side also encourages locals to use their land by planting chili.
"Surely it is able to handle the spike in chili prices," she stressed.
