Feed millers setting up warehouses for local corn

25.01.2017

Responding to the Indonesian government’s rule on stopping corn imports, the Indonesian Feed Producers Association (APPI) said its members are currently setting up warehouses and corn dryers to absorb local corn. “Our concern is only about our inability to absorb all corn during the harvesting period.

Another concern is on stock management as the harvesting period is not every month and we can’t accurately predict the production per region,” said Desianto Budi Utomo, APPI Chairman. Dr Utomo said it is estimated that the feed milling industry this year will need around 8.4 million tonnes of corn.
