Danone Indonesia Offers Six-Month Maternity Leave Since 2016

Jakarta. Food company Danone Indonesia recently said that it had already offered a six-month maternity leave for its female employees since 2016.

The House of Representatives has proposed a six-month maternity leave for female employees under the Maternal and Child Welfare Bill. Last week, the bill officially became a House of Representatives initiative.

According to Danone Indonesia, the company has allowed its female employees to get a six-month maternity leave since a long time ago.

“As a family-friendly company, Danone Indonesia truly understands that employees have the right to work, have a family, and decent life. In line with the company’s goal to bring health to as many people, we strive to create a safe, healthy, and supportive workplace. This includes giving support for parents to ensure an optimal child development,” Arif Mujahidin, the corporate communications director at Danone Indonesia, was quoted as saying in a recent press statement.

“Since August 2016, we have offered a 6-month maternal leave for female employees and a 10-day leave for male employees whose wife is giving birth.

WHO chiefs discuss local food safety issues

Regional World Health Organization (WHO) leaders used World Food Safety Day to highlight topics important in their countries.

Takeshi Kasai, WHO regional director for the Western Pacific, said traditional markets are a key part of the food system.

“They play an important economic, cultural and social role in the Asia Pacific region and are a source of livelihood for millions of people in both urban and rural areas. Healthy and safe traditional food markets can be achieved by implementing measures based on risks identified in the market. When managed properly they provide access to safe, healthy, nutritious and culturally appropriate food and they play a role in promoting health and preventing diseases, especially among vulnerable groups,” he said.

When managed improperly, food markets can be unsafe environments and even pose health risks related to food safety and zoonoses threats.

“Whether you’re a consumer or work in a food market there are simple measures you can take to mitigate the risks in traditional food markets. Maintaining good personal hygiene habits, avoid mixing raw and ready-to-eat foods, check if foods are safe and suitable for consumption before eating them and minimize contact with live animals in markets and follow local public health

NMBC Assesses Its Relationship With The Caribbean

By Fritz-Earle Mc Lymont

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. June 29, 2022: As the National Minority Business Council Inc. (NMBC) celebrates 50 years of advocacy and facilitating opportunities for Black-owned businesses, and Washington assesses the fallout from what has been described as its “low-wattage” 2022 Summit of the Americas, it’s a fitting time for NMBC to reflect on its relationship with the Caribbean.

The Summit was held June 6-10, during Caribbean-American Heritage Month, which makes NMBC’s reflection timely as well. With at least three of its founders of Caribbean origin, the region has long been of interest to NMBC.

For more than three decades the organization has engaged regional political and business sectors through investment conferences, trade missions, and Caribbean Business Exchanges in partnership with U.S. local and federal agencies, such as New York’s Empire State Development, the U.S. Department of Commerce, Export Import Bank, and Trade Development Agency. A current project involves the development of downtown Kingston, Jamaica, in which it has collaborated with a local cultural foundation for the past eight years.

As a membership business organization, NMBC’s focus has been and continues to be the development and growth mainly of small businesses

Salmon group Tassal in a sweet spot, says CEO

Tassal generates about 70 per cent of its sales from the domestic market, and 30 per cent from exports to countries including China, Japan and Indonesia.

Mr Ryan said restrictions put in place by the Tasmanian government where it has put a moratorium on granting any new leases in Tasmanian waters for salmon farming, and is committed to no net increase in acreage under a new 10-year industry plan to be in force from January 1, were a good thing for the industry.

“I think it’s a really healthy thing to do,” Mr Ryan said. “It’s right for the times, and it’s right at this juncture”.

Tassal has tiger prawn operations in Queensland and is also the largest seaweed farmer in Australia as part of its expansion and diversification strategy.

“We don’t feel we need any more hectares in Tasmanian waters,” he said. Environmental groups have been critical of commercial Atlantic salmon farming in ocean pens, saying it causes damage to marine ecosystems.

Tassal is in a sweet spot with its existing levels of salmon production of 40,000 tonnes a year. This enables better investment returns, because to lift production further would mean extra capital spending on land-based ponds and

In Indonesia, ‘pay later’ services leave some drowning in

Ubud, Indonesia – Nadhea Putri’s mounting debt began with a single mobile phone purchase.

Putri, who lives in Kuala Kapuas, Central Kalimantan, about 1,600km from Jakarta, had dreamed of upgrading to a newer model for months but did not have enough cash.

Then, earlier this year, the 21-year-old university student noticed an option to buy now, pay later (BNPL) offered on the checkout page of her favourite online shopping app. It took her less than 24 hours to activate the payment method, and the phone – which cost nearly five times her monthly earnings – was finally hers in February.

More than four months later, Putri is still struggling to pay back the balance, along with mounting interest.

“I’m too scared to even use my new phone now,” Putri told Al Jazeera, asking to use a pseudonym to protect her anonymity. “Every day, debt collectors call me more than 20 times. I feel terrorised, but I can’t tell my parents. I don’t want to burden them.”

BNPL, which lets customers pay for goods in instalments at varying rates of interest, has helped to plug a significant lending gap in Indonesia. Credit card penetration in the country is notoriously low, sitting

Cycle News Staff | June 28, 2022

The FIM MXGP World Championship took place at an all-new venue, the Samota Rocket Motor Circuit in Samota-Sumbawa, Indonesia for the Indonesian Grand Prix, round 12 of the series, June 26. The track was purpose-built for this race and while the starting gates were sparse, with 20 MXGP riders and only 14 lining up for the MX2 class, the venue itself saw a healthy turnout of fans at the island event. KTM’s Tom Vialle and Honda’s Tim Gajser both swept the day with perfect 1-1 finishes.


Only the strongest MXGP riders made an appearance at the MXGP of Indonesia as costs and logistics played a part in rider attendance. Some riders even battled food poisoning prior to the event, but toughed it out in order to race. Moto one saw Tim Gajser holeshot and quickly escape from the rest of the field. The points leader was practically untouchable for the entire first race as he went on to victory. Despite battles throughout the pack, Jorge Prado and Ruben Fernandez held on for second and third.
