I would support what he wants Meranti Islands Regent's (making sago as a food substitute for rice and sago downstream products)," said Andi Wagubri is familiarly called it during his speech.

During this time, sago has not been able to properly processed into various products that have economic value. Until now, new sago known to the public as one of the food ingredients, such as sago and other noodles. 


In fact, sago not only can be processed into various food products, but also cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, plastics materials and adhesives industry needs to bioethanol. "Investors should look at this as a very promising business opportunities," said Andi again. During this time, the utilization of sago as a food source still far less than the national rice.
