PONOROGO - The Logistics Affairs Agency (Bulog) Ponorogo Branch ensures that rice stocks in its working area, including Ponorogo, Pacitan and Magetan, East Java, are safe to meet the consumption needs of the community for the next four months. "We are in the safe category. There are more than 11 thousand tons of stock in all areas of Ponorogo work, and surrounding districts," said Head of Perum Bulog Branch of Ponorogo Regency, Aan Sugiarto in Ponorogo, Antara, Sunday, December 4. It is said, the Bulog benchmark refers to the needs of community rice for the last two months, where the average need for consumption is around 2,500 tons per month. If the ratio of the need for rice is less than equal, then the rice stock available in the warehouses can be used to meet the needs for the next four months. "That's the stock we control for the next four months, if the average consumption of people's rice, per month" explained Aan. According to Aan, Bulog's rice stock is being prepared for price stabilization, budget groups and natural disasters. Especially for price stabilization, rice deposited to Bulog is priced at IDR 8,300 per kilogram so that at the consumer level the price is stable not exceeding the Highest Retail Price (HET) for medium rice which is priced at IDR 9,450 per kilogram. "Crime rice has indeed increased because the harvest has decreased, while demand has increased. Moreover, facing Christmas and New Year also has an effect," he said.
