Acting Governor of Papua, Soedarmo claimed to love coffee and processed food typical of Papua made from sago. It was conveyed by the governor during Focus Group Discussion Realizing food sovereignty through the development of sago integrated upstream-downstream, in Jayapura, Monday (4/6/2018) evening.
"I already feel some kind of processed food from sago, it tastes good and delicious is not inferior to the taste of processed food from flour other than sago," said Soedarmo.
Soedarmo hopes the effort to promote local Papuan food is not just a slogan or promises to please the people. But it's time to raise the local potential to become an icon of the region, while increasing competitiveness.
"In addition to this local potential we need to develop to improve the regional economy, support food security in Papua, and make sago as staple food crops and in the future make sago as a national food crop and the world," said Soedarmo explained.
In front of Forkompimda, Rector, Ondoafi, the owner of sago, said that sago is a healthy food and can act as a crop available all the time that is not easily attacked by pests.
In addition sago plant species play an important role to improve the environment, especially able to absorb air pollution and maintain the conservation of water and soil fertility outside the main function as a carbohydrate producer of starch flour is quite a lot.
According to him, some countries are currently looking at sago as a food crop to face the food crisis that is expected to happen in 2030.
He suggested that the declaration of local food culture, especially sago food, needs to be done integrated development from upstream to downstream. In addition, farmers and peoples' rights groups are required to support the development of sago to run optimally.
"Farmers need to be equipped with seeding techniques, planting, thinning, and maintenance as well as a good harvest, including mentoring in sago field mamajemen," he said.
Soedarmo mentioned the importance of farmer cooperatives to provide for the daily needs of the community, as well as harvesters. The cooperative should provide a role to the existing adat institutions. The private sector also needs to be involved in accommodating the community's sago production, providing the necessary infrastructure for sago development.
