Chairman of Indonesian Cocoa Industry Association ( AIKI ) Pieter Jasman said during the local supply of cocoa beans are still not sufficient for the industry . As a result , the industry must look for the supply of cocoa beans from around the world .
According to Pieter , the current local production of cocoa beans is only about 480 thousand tons per year . While the installed capacity cocoa processing industry has now reached 600 thousand tons per year . " So , the industry still requires import 120 thousand tons per year , " he said .
Pieter states demand the abolition of import duties will not affect the cocoa beans for local cocoa farmers . Because, according to him , the local cacao still can be absorbed by the industry . After all , " Approximately 80 percent of processed cocoa products sold to the export market . "
