MANGGA TOBA (WINE)
In the Village Silimalombu there are a lot of Toba Mango trees growing, only the nice one can be sold. The fallen down Mango just getting rotten. The insects give eggs to the Mango and as a result the next season you have a lot of worms.
Therefore nearly all around Lake Toba the Mango getting sprayed with Pesticides and insecticides. Therefore it needs a solution.
What to do with the falling down Mango?
The oldest Mango tree is around 500 years old and still has a lot of fruit.
I really miss making products from fallen mangoes, and in 2014 we tried to ferment the mango by first making mango juice and then fermenting it.
After 3 months we try to see the results of the fermentation there is already acidic and has become vinegar and others there are very good fermenting into wine.
From the results of the fermentation we try to evaluate why it is acidic. From the results of the study while learning from google, we tried again in the next mango season and it turned out that the same thing happened, namely acid (vinegar), this happened because we were late to check the mango juice.
In 2016, we tried again to ferment Toba Mango and a little better than before. This is little by little we are repairing and monitoring each drum containing mango juice and finally producing excellent mango wine.
We also make other products from mango juice, namely mango jam and mango vinegar.
Now Toba mangoes are not only sold mangoes but also derivative products.
If you want to try mango wine, you can contact us at Silimalombu. Onan Runggu sub-district, Samosir Regency with Ratnauli Gultom and Thomas Heinle
And we also long for the manufacture of mango juice and can be packaged well and sterile, and we need a special machine for this, if you all want to help or donate 1 mango juice maker in the region. This will be at least an investment of more then 200.000 USD. This we can not afford.
But to make the wine, this we can do. There it is possible to process in the harvesting season more then one ton. But for other products we need machines.
But now we have another problem. Since 2014 we applied for a license to make mango wine, and vinegar and jam. But until today, the government is not able to process a license. They said, there is an Indonesian law, that don´t allow to give a new license, to produce more alcohol, than 5 percent.
Law against the constitution
But this law is in two reasons against the Pancasila, the Indonesian constitution:
- To produce and to consume wine is an essential part of the christian religion. It is a central believing, that Jesus can make wine out of water, and the wine is a symbol of the blood of Jesus, which in each ceremony is getting drunken. Without wine is the Christian believing not to execute.
- Companies from outside can sell the wine in Indonesia. Why the government of Indonesia supports foreigner and not the Indonesian people?
The regency of Samosir could go to the Court for the Constitution (MA) to get this cleared. Also it is important for them, because the local alcohol, the Tuak als normally has more then 5 percent. With this the Government of Samsosir make maybe more then the half of all the men to criminals. How the citizen can trust a Government if they take care of them like this?
What we can do no with our Mango?
With a small part of it, we can make Jam and Chutney. But we cannot cook a ton a day in the harvesting time. There we cannot process more then 50 kg a day. What to do with the other ton?
Already we don´t have space to storage the wine anymore.
Then we looked at the bottle of 96 % Alcohol, we bought for 25.000 Rp per Liter in a carton of 12 bottles just in a shop in Medan. We need this for cleaning our bottles. This can be produced. There is no warning on it or anything with a licence.
And then an idea came up. We also produce alcohol. We also can do this for cleaning purposes, if it is not possible, to produce and sell it for drinking. We want also to follow the law and don´t want to do something against.
And then the idea was:
We produce and sell the world most exquisite and expensive Toilet cleaner
