PGN Saka’s Partner Tambakrejo Farmer Group Wins First Place in Semarang City’s Urban Farming Competition

The Tambakrejo Farmer Group, a partner of Saka Energi Muriah Limited, has won 1st place in the Urban Farming Champion (UFC) 2024 in Semarang City for the Farmer Group category. The Tambakrejo Farmer Group is a partner of SEML in collaboration with the Research and Community Service Institute (LPPM) of Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNNES). This achievement adds to their previous success of winning 2nd place in the same event last year.


Ragil Budi Prasetyo, the Chairman of the Tambakrejo Farmer Group, received the award directly from the Mayor of Semarang during the peak event of the Urban Farming Champion 2024 awards ceremony, which was held in conjunction with the Semarang City Anniversary ceremony on May 2, 2024. The UFC 2024 is an annual event organized by the Semarang City Agriculture Office, with five categories: Elementary School, Middle School, Village Women’s Group (PKK), Sub-district Women’s Group (PKK), and Farmer/Women Farmer Groups.


“Through Urban Farming, we hope to provide an alternative food source in Tambakrejo Village, in line with the government’s program for alternative food provision,” said Erry Affandi, Manager of Stakeholder Relations Department.


The judging period consisted of three stages: administrative selection, presentation and interview, and finally, a field visit by the judges. The purpose of the UFC is to build a self- sufficient, healthy, and inclusive food sovereignty in Semarang City. We hope PGN Saka can continue to contribute positively to the community and environment together with the Company’s Partner Groups.
