"They (P4S) also do distribution to supermarkets in Jakarta and Bogor. The average number of distribution to Jakarta is between one and two tons," she expressed, Monday (12/6).

Besides monitoring pesticides, the team saw firsthand how the post-harvest handling process for fresh leaf vegetables and fruit commodities from the garden to ready to be sent to the final consumer.

"Post-harvest handling of fresh commodities of tomatoes, chilies, cabbage, mustard greens and other vegetables is quite simple. However, it already has standards issued by BP POM and Agriculture Ministry's Central Food Safety Competence Authority (OKKPP)

She added, the arrangements start from the food entering from the field, until it is washed clean through running and pressurized water, entering the conveyor to be drained to grading according to relatively the same size to facilitate packaging.
