Cirebon – In the midst of the market dominance of branded cigarettes cigarette factory large, apparently non home-based products can still survive. Just look at the cigarette brand Sami Jaya and Panamas, the original production of cigarettes Cirebon is not losing fans who make the factory continues mengebul.

Manufacturing site is located in the village of Astanalanggar, District Losari, Cirebon, West Java. At first glance, the location of the factory is not like a cigarette factories that use advanced technology machines.

Machine owned simply because these types of production Fertile PR categorized Clove Cigarettes Hand (SKT). So entirely produced by hand, starting from pelintingan up packing.

Wide each plant was no more than 60 square meters. PR Lush has two production rooms, one for producing brand Sami Jaya, another for the brand Panamas.

“Our cigarette brands there are two, and Panamas Sami Jaya,” said Hussen.

Hussen said the two brands produced by 75 bales per month. Approximately one bale contains 200 packs of cigarettes. So the total production of about 15 thousand PR Fertile packs per month.

“The number of factory employees there are 100 people. They work alternately,” said Hussen.

Pelintingan production schedule up packing only performed for 10 days in 1 month. The rest is for pre-production and distribution process.

With a production volume that is not so great, but the two brands Hussen Nawi’s style can be exported to other cities.

“The distribution of our brands, especially in Cirebon and Tegal,” said Hussen.

On the other hand, the presence of PR Subur also provide economic empowerment to the surrounding community. Because in addition to having the factory, Hussen also has its own tobacco plantations.

“Total tobacco plantation area for our production of about 30 acres. Of these, only 3 acres of my own, the rest is leased,” said Hussen.

Surrounding communities also assess the presence of PR is a form of mutualism Fertile economy, especially in providing alternative livelihoods.

Livelihoods of the majority of the population around the plant is in agriculture and plantations. Well, almost all the workers in the factory packing pelintingan to pack Nawi is the mother-housewife.

“With this plant, our free time could be used to gain additional revenue,” said one factory worker.

Personally, Hussen is an exemplary employer. He had not been tempted to use fake excise stamps.

The surplus is very encouraging, because in the last few seasons, the rat attack raged in a number of centers of rice production. In fact, based on the records of the Department of Agriculture Klaten, Klaten rat infestation has reached the range of 1,000 hectares of land.
“Hama rats pose a threat to farmers in Klaten, since the last few seasons. Absence of rat infestation, I believe the total production of rice in Klaten can far exceed the total production achieved today,” said Head of the Department of Agriculture Klaten, Wahyu Prasetyo Ir MSi, Thursday (1/8).

Protein needs can be Filled with Fly Larvae from Machine Eat It

Everyone must know that soy or eggs can be a meat substitute material because it is rich in protein. But apparently protein needs can also be met from fly larvae harvested from the machine. Want to try?

Woman from Austria, Katharine Unger, developing a new engine, named Farm to harvest 432 pounds of larvae every week and enough for two meals. Industrial design graduate of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna is developing the idea because he wanted to tackle livestock meat industry by producing proteins that nobody else in the house comes from the larvae of flies.

Larvae were processed using Farm 432 will smell like potato flour with the taste a bit ‘spicy’ and solid. This machine is designed with light and space Unger enough for fly larvae to grow and produce. Although the current design of the tool is still in use in the home kitchen, but the system could be improved for use in the professional kitchen.

“This tool is easy to use by anyone, you just need to put some black flies and here they will breed and then moved to a larger space to produce larvae,” Unger said, as quoted by the Daily Mail, Thursday (1/8 / 2013).

Then, the larvae will be in a separate area and then it will move to the top of the tube. Once processed, the larvae will be directed into containers such as cups and ready to be eaten. Some larvae which fell back into the machine will be processed again.

Unger chose black flies because it’s kind of easy to breed animals and contains high calcium, amino acids, and 42 percent protein. The amount is double the protein content in chicken breast. One gram of black fly eggs can produce 2.4 kg of protein after processing at Farm 432 for 432 hours.

“But if the black flies are not to your taste, then the larvae of other animals can also be used,” said Unger. In 2050, meat production is expected to increase 50 percent to meet the needs of a rising population.

“Since we’ve been using one third of agricultural land for the production of animal feed, it is necessary to develop new methods of production alternative food sources,” said Unger.

Recent reports indicate that the insect is one viable source of protein for humans such as grasshoppers or ants can be packed into protein substitute that is not more dangerous than beef cattle. To eat the larvae, Unger recommend using tomato risotto.

“I love mixing parboiled rice with rice and larvae, then I add a lot of tomato sauce in it and a little parmesan cheese. Then add a little parsley or basil on it, then you become perfect dish,” says Unger.

“The weight of it is in wood, one person can take 2 cars a month firewood, a car Rp 380,000 and Rp 10,000 daily source of drugs,” said Uti.

About the process of making coconut sugar, according to Dada is not difficult. After obtaining leads in the morning, he had to prepare a large furnace of firewood for cooking the coconut sap. Penggodokannya process takes up to 2 to 3 hours, after which the mixture begins to thicken and is ready to be put into a bamboo mold.

Chairman of the Association of Meatballs: Meatballs Home Industry Feels Better

Meatballs made readily available large-scale industry. Ranging from traditional markets, modern markets, until the restaurant. However, homemade meatballs cottage industry remains the most savory. Chairman of the Merchants Association Noodles and Meatballs (APMISO) Indonesia has a reason.

According to the Chairman APMISO Trisetyo Budiman, tasty meatballs least determined by the purity of beef used. For meatballs, commonly used secondary cut of beef, such as topside, knuckle, and rump. In fact, those who use the primary cut of meat like a cube roll or tenderloin.

Sure, the price is not cheap raw materials. Moreover, a good meat for meatball ingredients is minimal fat meat. In addition, the composition of which is true meatball is more meat than flour. “8-10 kg of meat at the most appropriate sagunya 4-5 ounces, half a kilo,” Tri said when met at the office detikfood APMISO (29.04.13).

This is where the point distinction meatballs from large industries and cottage industries, namely the composition of meat and flour. Tri argues, large industries that supply supermarkets to sell their products at a low price in order to sell. This is done by increasing the flour over the meat. “More comfortable home industry for daring to give the meatballs with 99% beef,” said Tri.

Tri confident cottage industry will be equivalent to the branded companies. “It is possible, because of the taste (cottage industry) win,” he said optimistically. However, Tri recognizes small businesses still lost the other factors.

An example is the ignorance of a good business location because they do not have access to the information. “If the silent branded’ve visited, emailed, in-fuel,” he said. And he lamented, serving 20% ​​of SMEs in the malls now only discourse. “Policy makers should be encouraged, to provide support to SMEs to the next grade,” he continued.

Tri alone has venture Meatballs Ino who had scattered in Jakarta and outside the city. Most of the home-based industry-made meatballs sold in stores Meatballs Ino. However, those that are sold at retail raw.

In Jakarta, the brand meatballs are quite popular cottage industry in the traditional market is Monalisa. In Bandung, there Midshipman and Meatballs Meatballs Cihampelas. Modern market that target the middle class is usually filled with names like Meatballs Meatballs Kebun Kusno and Orange, which, according to Tri relatively large-scale industry.

Business in the Ever Revealed Cipinang Rahardi Ramelan

Freddy Budiman name drug kingpin back to attention. Was sentenced to death for allegedly getting special facilities languishing in prisons Narcotics Prison. Woman claiming to be his close friend, Vanny Rossyanne, reveals, there is a special room which is used in prisons with Freddy. Vanny’s recognition also resulted in dismissal of the Head of the Narcotics Prison, Thurman Hutapea.

Not just about to do with Freddy, Vanny also mentioned, Freddy is still in control of its business in the prison. 2012 last year, Freddy is known to bring in large quantities of ecstasy pills from China. He could still organize smuggling 1,412,475 ecstasy pills from China and 400,000 ecstasy from the Netherlands.

Alleged business run from behind prison reminiscent of the stories that have been revealed by the ex-convict case Bulog funds, Rahardi Ramelan, which had languished in Cipinang. In 2008, he launched a book Cipinang Underdeveloped Villages. Business Rahardi expressed in the book is not a big business that operated as Freddy.
This paper has also been published in Kompas.com in August 2008.


DJ a prisoner who has long been Palkam (Head Room), control of oil trading land and drinking water, and reputedly derived turnover up to 15 million per day.
For two years in Cipinang, in addition to support two wives with 5 children, it can help finance the manufacture of his family home in the village.
All trade turnover estimated at Cipinang could reach USD 100 million per day. Biggest business is the sale of cigarettes, because not only serve inmates but also staff and officials.
That footage stories poured ex-convict case Bulog funds, Rahardi Ramelan in his village Cipinang Disadvantaged.
Former head of Bulog, said he was likened Cipinang tub underdeveloped villages. Why?

“Yes, because in it there are educational baseball, baseball’s okay, just behind the village rich,” said Rahardi, Wednesday (20/08/2008).
Story in 190 pages thick book that is the story of his experiences while serving a sentence since August 2005 until September 2006. “During my LP instead in fat, added weight 4 pounds because baseball thinking anything,” he continued.
One of the stories are quite interesting diutarakannya matter of business is in prison in East Jakarta numbers. Description Rahardi described, in almost every residential block long Cipinang there are many stalls that provide all the necessities of life like a supermarket.
Various goods supplied ranging from fast food, instant noodles, coffee, rice, and wheat. In fact, fresh vegetables and necessities like toothbrush, flip-flops, and was full of drugs available. This stalls flourished because of the food supplied Prison inmates are considered less standard.

“The quality and taste is very drab, no flavor other than salt,” writes Rahardi.
When new prisons were in operation, conditions are not much different. In new prison, not allowed to cook in the room, despite the fact that there are many kitchens that operate there. There are no less than 10 stalls and stalls selling a variety of foods, such as satay stalls, grilled fish, food stall, vegetables, up to a phone repair stall.
In addition to business stalls, Rahardi also tells how the penjenguk collected money (although the numbers seikhlasnya) will now visit detained relatives. Which is, of course, being the business of the prison officers.

“It’s time to come clean about the situation in the penitentiary or other government agencies. Actors who do not always blame. System we have created such a circumstance. Required overall settlement, including the welfare of employees,” said Rahardi. When asked whether he was not afraid to reveal the practices that take place in prisons, Chairman of Indonesian Association of Prisoners is just laughing. “Enggaklah, why be afraid. I’m just writing what I know, what I experienced during my imprisonment,” he said briefly.

Business pulse

In addition to all the food stalls and daily necessities, one of the lively business and serve as a way to transfer the money by inmates is selling pulses. How can that be?

Family or relatives to use way to transfer a number of pulses to the cell phone number of the inmates. Pulse that has been transferred is then sold to other inmates. In order to get cash fast manner, often times the pulses are sold much cheaper than the market price.

Pulse with a value of Rp 100 thousand sold at Rp 80 thousand, and at certain times can drop to Rp 75 thousand. “Every morning and afternoon, I heard cries of ‘sympathy, emtri, Eksel cepe’. Cry is not only one time but several times and made a few people. Apparently, they are the peddlers pulse trace around the halls of LP in residential blocks, as well as itinerant traders offering satay skewers in the surrounding residential areas, “writes Rahardi.

They are used to peddle pulse is mostly “under the child”, the lowest caste among the prisoners. “Children under” rarely visited family and did not provide a financial contribution for the purposes of room. The main buyers of these pulses are officers and officials and their families.

The rise of trade credit is not due to the high level of mobile phone use in prison, but because the inmates forced their daily financial needs. At the very least, they should provide the cost for money rooms, meal money, buy water, cigarettes, and others. Not to mention for the levies that often occur.

Most of the inmates hang financial fulfillment of families who visit. Transferring money via pulses considered safest of the various “circumcision”. Imagine, if directly give cash during a visit, perhaps none are up to half the inmates.
