In order to stabilise the price of beef, Indonesia’s Trade Ministry has issued permits for the State Logistics Agency (Bulog) to import 10,000 tonnes of frozen (prime cut) beef from New Zealand. “The permit has been issued. Bulog must now check the price to ensure that it won’t be too high,” said Karyanto Suprih, Acting Director General of Foreign Trade. Darmin Nasution, Coordinating Minister for Economy, said the beef is estimated to arrive next month. New Zealand was chosen because the price of beef from the country is lower than that from Australia.
