Distribution of Production Tools

Production equipment is one of the vital needs in producing organic coconut sugar after nira (coconut nectar). Without production equipment, the trained partners cannot make organic coconut sugar in the form of ant sugar. In practice, the production tools needed in making organic coconut sugar include sieves, filters, and gums or guseran. There is also every production tool has provisions that are in accordance with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). For example, for sieves, it is required to use stainless steel with a hole of density (mesh) 16. Then for the filter itself using the same material as the 100 mesh.

The purpose of the procurement of these production tools is nothing but to support the production activities of fostered partners in uniforming the quality and quality of organic coconut sugar produced. When quality and quality are maintained, it will certainly provide benefits for both parties. Where this is in line with the concept of partnership that has been built so far, namely mutual benefit from each other.

In its implementation, the Production Aid Aid Program collaborated with one of the producers of special production tools of organic coconut sugar in the village of Rancamaya, Cilongok District, Banyumas Regency. He is Mr. Aziz Irwanto, who is a successful sugar craftsman in the region. Mr. Aziz Irwanto helped PT Integral Mulia Cipta in meeting the needs of production equipment.

The Production Tool Aid Program is implemented in almost all the target areas owned by PT Integral Mulia Cipta including Banyumas Regency and Purbalingga Regency. From the data collected there were 9 (nine) villages that received assistance with production tools, namely Pageraji, Pernasidi and Gununglurah villages (Cilongok Sub-district); Sawangan village, Jingkang, and Sawangan (Ajibarang Subdistrict); and Karangmangu village (Purwojati District). Kerangean village (Kertanegara-Purbalingga District) and Gumelem Kulon and Gumelem Wetan villages (Susukan – Banjarnegara District).

It is hoped that this flagship program can be continued in the coming years with the addition of other production equipment in the form of pans used for cooking and cooking stoves.

True, this house is being used by Muhammad Mahfur to teach Islamic studies together with surrounding children. It seems the children are sitting in chairs facing each other while mimicking the words uttered by Mahfur. This 49-year-old man inserts a little time to teach on the sidelines of work to collect.

Distribution of Bulletin to Farmers

Communication is an important element in relationship. Similarly, PT Integral Mulia Cipta also established communication with thousands of assisted farmers to strengthen the relationship between the two. One of the communication media used by the company is a bulletin published once a month.

Bulletin is a publication medium published by the company on a regular basis and distributed to all company partners across Banyumas, Banjarnegara, and Purbalingga regions. The bulletin contains news about the profile of farmers, stages of sugar production, management of organic coconut sugar, organic land, and other interesting information which is useful to increase farmers’ insight.

The company is trying to provide the latest information needed by farmers on the development of organic coconut sugar. In addition, the bulletin is also functioned as an educational medium for assisted farmers; persuasive media for farmers to consistently produce quality organic coconut sugar; and a means of entertaining for farmers through the quiz rubric contained in the bulletin.

In addition to functioning as a medium of communication and information for farmers, the bulletin is also an attractive and informative means of communication for the progress of organic coconut sugar production. Bulletin also becomes a literacy medium and enhances the reading culture among farmers. The bulletin which is distributed regularly is a manifestation of the company’s concern for the company’s partners.

The bulletin is equipped with representative graphic photos and images. Farmers are also invited to play an active role in answering quizzes in the bulletin in return for interesting prizes. Hopefully, the presence of bulletin among farmers can be an effective means to support the progress of organic coconut sugar.
