On Wednesday 24 May 2023, SIG through its representative, Insan Patria as the supervisor of the research division, had the opportunity to present about the importance of conducting Sulfuryl Fluoride (SF) tests on rice in the Asia Pacific Food Analysis Forum (APFAN) held at Acacia Hotel, Manila – Philippines. Insan said that SIG intends to explain  that our understanding in supporting the obtained of a safer world #towardsasaferworld can be realized by providing test of SF contamination. Sulfuryl Fluoride or commonly known as SF is a compound commonly used in rice fumigation. At certain levels, it can be dangerous because of its carcinogenic properties.

This activity was attended by about 166 participants from 7 Asia Pacific countries. Insan explained that ASEAN is a contributor to rice consumption. It reaches 22 percent of world rice consumption. Now, we should start paying attention to SF content to support quality safety in consumption and also become an added value for rice exporting countries in obtaining recognition of safe eligibility by importing countries. It is also known that now the European Union has regulated SF contamination of 0.05 mg/Kg so that analysis of Sulfuryl Fluoride content is considered mandatory, especially for rice exporters in Indonesia to European countries.
