WMU’s business unshaken by corn price increase

35

Indonesian poultry integrator Widodo Makmur Unggas (WMU) claims that the rising price of local feed corn does not significantly affect its business performance. CEO Ali Mas’adi said its production and revenue contribution are bigger in processing rather than in farming. “The corn price increase doesn’t really affect our business. We can control the cost,” he added. Elsewhere, WMU sees a 300% sales growth this year driven by growing capacity utilization and market distribution. Its H1 2021 net sales jumped 157.66% to USD 91.23 million year-on-year.
