Organic Noni Plantation
Last May 17 to June 4, 2010 I visited Indonesia with three main objectives.
No. 1 objective was to expand Organic JAS certifying noni plantation, therefore we examined propable plantation sites incliusive of Serang, Sukabumi and Subang.
In fact, all the noni plantations are maintained in an organic faming way, but we need huge areas from reason of maintenance and control.
We found many noni plantations were abondaned by cutting trees, because of no more BOOMING.
At least additional 30 ha will be certified as Organic JAS faiming of Noni fruit.
No.2 was to make sure of stable production and supply of Buah Merah extract oil.
My partners and I visited Jayapura, Papua Province and discussed with producer/supplier in Papua for sustainable production.
If we support them in technically or financially, there is high possibility to be produced, we agreed in this way.
No.3 was to make a plan to co-work with Indonesian instituies/university on R/D of Indonesian tropical herbal plants, including
Noni (mengkudu), Buah Merah, EVCO, Kumis kuching, Jahe merah etc.
I had positive responses from them.
Waht I have to initiate is to propose concrete study designs.
During the period, I could meet additional interesting Indonesian people who are mates of Facebook.
Our network with current and new contacts is being expanded.
M&K Laboratories Inc. will promote Noni juice and Buah Merah, and cooperate with Indonesian partners in quality control of the Products in continue.
