Mangrove & Coastline

 

Pedada Merah (Sonneratia ovata)  is one of the compilers of mangrove forest. Sonneralia Ovata breeds by seeds and lives in group. Sonneralia ovata fruit has a flat round shape. Apart from the trees that have benefits to counteract abrasion and tourism potential, fruits from Soneratia Ovata can also be processed into food.

 

Seeing this potential, Badak LNG took the initiative to provide guidance to the community through a mangrove diversification training program. This training formed six groups that produce processed mangrove fruit with the type of Soneratia Ovata.  Some products include mangrove syrup, mangrove sweets, mangrove dodol, and mangrove envelopes.
