Regulatory support for the kratom trade
I wanted to share some developing information about kratom in Indonesia. It looks like the first steps have been made to make kratom a commodity in Indonesia. We still have a way to go, but this meeting is a huge first step for GMP and proper manufacturing guidelines for kratom products.
Remember that quality control and modern machines cost money, but the result is clean properly processed kratom. We must protect kratom and make sure that future generations have access to this plant.
The Indonesian government through the Office of the Presidential Staff (KSP) highly appreciates the offer of cooperation to develop kratom commodity as an export commodity herbal plant that is beneficial for health. This cooperation offer was initiated by the American-Indonesian Chamber of Commerce, the American Kratom Association (AKA) and the Anugerah Bumi Hijau Producers Cooperative (KOPRABUH).
This meeting was about assuring better and more uniform product quality and sanitary handling, with the goal of ending the Import Alert and preparing to submit the Kratom Consumer Protection Act on the federal level.
This will mean prices on raw kratom products will go up for those who support fair trade. There can be a tariff on shipments now too. I was told that this would not be a dramatic difference in price, but real cheap kratom that does not seem to work should not be a problem in a few years.
This is great news for kratom consumers who want good kratom! The kratom producers in Indonesia that care about kratom invest their money into modern machines and modern facilities. This is a huge expense and takes time, but many are focused on making kratom the future commodity of Indonesia.
I was invited to this meeting to witness these events, but we have too much going on here in New Jersey with our business. Plus, with my heart condition it is not the best idea to head out into the jungle right now.
I will go to Indonesia at some point and genuinely want to see more than just pictures and having our zoom meetings. I promise to have plenty of pictures for you. Right now, I can get plenty of pictures second hand from our friends in Indonesia.
I will be meeting with our supplier and group this Weekend in New York City. They are in the USA for a few weeks meeting with their American vendors. They were at the Champs Trade Show in Las Vegas and witnessed the flooding a couple of weeks ago. Come to visit the United States and get a once in a lifetime flood too!
We are a part of the American Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and friends with Koprabuh! The Kratom supply chain depends on proper kratom exports. This meeting will ensure proper shipments and reduce loss of seized kratom shipments.
We have more work to do to make sure that Fair Trade kratom will be a reality in Indonesia. There are plenty of people doing the right things and ensuring kratom is here for years to come. We have only purchased kratom raw materials from people that are doing things the right way.
There are also people who only care about money and are not doing anything for the future of kratom. We must make sure that we always support the people that are doing the right things! Fair Trade practices provide economic stability for Indonesian Kratom vendors. Kratom trees will not be around if we do not practice sustainable farming and ensure fair trade products.
I am thrilled to still be here talking about kratom since 2016! We started this business to provide customers with top quality products at affordable prices. We have been following fair trade since the beginning with our group in Indonesia.
