Q:    Why do Durian Juntak products rarely available in
        Supermarkets (Hero, Gelael, Carrefour, Fruit Stores, etc)?
A:    *  We decline product "Consignment" systems, and the
           30-days delayed payment system offered to us.
       *  We refuse to provide capital to supermarkets.  It is not
           the farmers' job to provide capital toward supermarkets.
       *  Supermarkets refuses business agreements which we
          provide, that will definitely benefits farmers/producers side.
          We believe, that the time is ripe for farmers to have
          voice in any business negotiation.
       *  Supermarkets only cares about sales volume, and profit
          margins.  They can NOT guarantee, answer questions, nor
          provide professional-service for Durian Juntak's products.
       *  Pre-Sales Service (prior to buying), and After-Sales Service
          (after merchandise has been bought) is very weak.
          Most of their personnel were poorly trained, and very stupid.
       *  High-level of service hard to guarantee, and level of
          responsibility is often non-existent.   Too much bureaucracy
          exists.  And yet, Durian Juntak's market segment are people
          who hate bureaucracy, heavyweight durian lovers, and
          rarely cares (insensitive) about product selling price.
       *  We are more interested in opening-up new markets,
          instead of relying on established market-networks.

Q:    What is the best, and most effective means to spread
        information regarding Durian Juntak ?
A:    *  From word of mouth.  Most of our new customers are
           buyers which were referred by our repeat-buyers.
       *  95% of new buyers whom have tasted, tried, and
           purchased our durian fruits continually return, and become
           regular-customers during our harvest periods.

Q:    How, and why do your regular customers remain loyal
        towards durian fruits produced by Durian Juntak ?

           fruits will always be 100% tree-ripen and fell naturally.
       *  Buyers are 100%-convinced buying from professional farmer.
       *  Our selling-price remains very competitive, and affordable.

Q:    Although you have plenty of experience in Durian plantation,
        why only now we hear about Durian Juntak in public ?
A:    In terms of sale, we have started limited-selling since 1999.
        However, only starting year 2002  we can provide sufficient
        quantity to cover a larger market-share, and willing to
        expose ourselves to the wider general public.

        Beginning year 2002, Durian Juntak plantation can be seen healthy,
        fresh, have bright-future, and provide excellent earnings due to
        hard-work in experiments, research and developments, testing,
        mastery of cultivation, professionalism, and our success to

        obtained permission to visit are allowed into Durian Juntak.

        man-power to entertain tourists or durian-enthusiasts in our plantation.
        We are also very afraid of potential various diseases-and-fungus

       durian products all-year-round.

       Our status is still small, and run by family members.  We still require
       plenty of time, and plenty of resources to train many employees
       before we can serve a wider public audience.  For the time being,
       please excuse us for our various shortcomings, and lack of facilities.
      Durian Juntak's Expansion process continues on an on-going
      and active process, and we are taking them step-by-step.

      Trust and believe in us, Durian Juntak consists of individuals who
      are heavyweights, and hard-core durian lovers (maniacs)  who have
      great passion to Durian Fruits.  The establishment of Durian Juntak
      Plantation is solid-proof of our obsession in high-quality durian.


Q:    Can I as a fruit-vendor  become your distributor in my city ?
A:    YES.   Please contact Jakarta for complete-information.
        We are always willing to work with you, and test-market in
        several cities across Indonesia, and to test your integrity,
        and your professionalism as new potential distributors.

        However, we continue to emphasize on customer-satisfaction
        of durian lovers as our number one-priority, and strive our
        best to popularize "Durian Juntak" in the market first.
        Should you fail to live-up and fail to meet our standards,
        we will sever and deny future business-opportunities.

        We want to convince direct durian buyers, and durian aficionados
        that "Durian produced in Indonesia" will always be higher-quality,
        better tasting, and more-satisfying than "Durian Imports from
        Thailand or Malaysia."
   
        Please excuse us, we are still a new-player in durian food business,
        and our production is still limited.   When we have achieved
        mastery and techniques of durian cultivation, and our Durian
        Juntak become more widespread, expansion of market in the
        retail, wholesale, and export can be easier conducted.

        *  Durian Juntak started from a hobby, and have evolved
            to become 100% pure-business and for profit status.

A:    *  Juntak is short for Simanjuntak.
        *  Simanjuntak is a family-name originating from Batak Clan.

Q:   What are the advantages of 1000 feet above sea level ?
A:   * Our plantation location is ideal for cultivation of durian,
          because high-rate of sun-shine intensity.
       * Our soil is perfect for durian because it's very-fertile,
          rich in minerals, and readily-available amount of water. 

Q:    How is business, and your durian production level ?
A:    *  Business is good, but we have difficulties in fulfilling demand.
          For the time being, our production level is only 5% from its
          full potential.  Our production-level will continue to increase
          from year-to-year as our durian plants mature, and our
          expansion of plantation to fulfill larger market demand.
       *  Research, Studying, and process of training our
          employees are still our number one priorities.

Q:    Although you have vast experience with Agri-business in
        Durian,  why is your production-level still  low ?
A:    * Our durian plantation was initially managed by care-takers
          who were inexperienced, and lack professionalism, therefore
          produced less-desirable results.   Many of our plants died by
          the notorious  phytophthora palmivora  disease, which is the
          main enemy-and-killer for durian plants.
       * Our initial 12-years of operation was devastating.  We started
          out as an amateur, encounter lots of difficulties, and faced
          many challenges.  We paid dearly to overcome the steep
          learning-curve associated with durian cultivation.
       *  90% mortality-rate was very common, during our initial years.
          We have managed to control mortality-rate to 5% or less
          (starting late 2003).  5% for seedlings is manageable, and normal.
        * Since early of year 1999, management of plantation have
          completely handled by Ir. Midian Simanjuntak, MBA, after
          retiring from Bank Rakyat Indonesia, which happened to be
          his life-time dream and obsession since he was a college
          student, because his parents owned a durian plantation in
          North Sumatera which was used to finance his college education.
        * Only recently that we have expanded in massive scale and
          completely focused to make this durian commodity as
          100% pure-business, and for profit.
        * We have only recently fully-mastered the art of durian cultivation
          due to hard-work done in experiments, research, trial-and-errors,
          and acclimated durian monthong into the Indonesian environment.

Q:    Do you have future plans to expand your durian plantation ?
A:    *  YES.  We are constantly trying to expand our durian plantation
          to anticipate growing demand in the future.  In the mean time,
          we are still surveying several locations for durian business
          expansion of "phase-2" in our business-plan.
       *  Long-term Planning to expand into Industry-Scale (1000+ hectares)
          will commence when our Organization Structure, including
          our situation-and-condition permits us.

Q:    Can I contact you for potential business-opportunity  ?
A:    YES.  Please contact Jakarta if you have interest
        and potential to invest in a particular field :
            *  Joint-Venture,
            *  Business-Partnership,
            *  Financial-Investor,
            *  New branch-outlet,
            *  Export of durian-fruit,
            *  Derivatives of durian.

Q:    Will you provide franchise (expansion permission, and name-rights),
        to open new plantation branches in other locations ?
A:    NO.   FRANCHISE  will-never be offered.
      
 After we made careful considerations:  franchise method in
        Durian Monthong Agri-business will never succeed, and
        impossible to control flow of information, and control
        Intellectual-Property secret information.

        All newer durian monthong plantations in various
        locations of Indonesia will be owned, managed,
        and directly-monitored by Simanjuntak.

        Expansion to non-Simanjuntak parties, will only involve
        in marketing, and distribution of end-products.
        Several fruit distributors, and fruit-vendors are currently
        in the process of integrity-testing, and test-market in
        various locations across Indonesia.

Q:   Is durian business profitable and have bright future ?
A:   YES.  Indonesia imports thousands of tons durian fruits from
       Thailand.  Indonesia produces tens of thousand tons of
       locally produced durians, as well.  If 1-Kg durian is sold for
       US$1, therefore available potential market of US$-millions
       per year in Indonesia.

       Export market for durian is also wide-open, and ripe for the taking.

Q:   What are Durian Juntak strengths in technical,
       business, management, finance, and marketing  ?
A:   Our most bitter experience were the initial 12 years, where
       many failures almost lead us into destruction, and
       bankrupt of entire durian business.  After the initial 12 years,
       we have successfully mastered, and handled the technical,
       business, and marketing of durian-fruits professionally.

Q:   What is your selling-price for durian fruits per Kg for
       meat only, as well as for whole fruits ?
A:   We constantly follow on-going market selling price in stores,
       monitor supply and demand, and durian harvest period conditions.
       Please call Jakarta to receive definite selling price over the phone,
       and you intend to purchase durian-fruits from us.

Q:   Can I bargain the selling-price of your durian fruit ?
A:   IF we compare durian monthong whole-fruit 100% tree-ripen versus
       Indonesian durian kampong as Kg vs. Kg, we admit that our
       selling-price will constantly be more expensive.  But if you compare
       the amount of durian meat (aril) that you can eat from durian montong
       vs. durian kampong, ONE mon thong fruit have equal amount of
       edible meat (aril) to FOUR ~ FIVE durian kampongs.
       
       Final result proves that eating durian monthong from us will always
       be satisfying, guaranteed, and cheaper than durian kampong.
       Rarely will you ever find durian-kampong that is 100% tree-ripen,
       and will guarantee your satisfaction in eating the durian-fruit.

Q:   When is the harvest-period for  "Durian Juntak" ?
A:   Peak Season :   Month of December till  May.
       Limited Quantities:  Month of June till November.

       Our durian fruits follow the harvest-period in Indonesia,
       and do NOT follow harvest-period in Thailand.

Q:   What are the advantages of buying durian mon-thong from
       Durian Juntak than buying from fruit stores, side-street
       vendors, or Thailand durian imports ?
A:   We 100% guarantee your satisfaction in enjoying our
       durian products.  All durian fruits are guaranteed 100%
       tree-ripen quality.  Should there be a disappointing
       durian fruit, we provide warranty to exchange that fruit
       or provide 100% full money-refund.

Q:   Why are you so confident that your durian-fruit quality will
       be much better (shouldn't imports usually tastes better) ?
A:   Our plantation is only 70Km from Jakarta (2 hours).  Durian
       fruits that you see and purchase from us have 99%
       probability are durian fruits harvested same day, or
       were brought in 24 hours earlier.  We guarantee that our
       durian fruit that we produce are 100% fresh, and tree-ripen.

Q:   What ?  How dare you say such things (I still prefer to eat
       durian import from Thailand ) ?
A:   Thailand is 8000 KM  from Jakarta.  However 100% tree-ripen
       durian fruit only have shelf-life of 2 to 5 days before it cracks
       because it is too ripe.  To counter this, durians from Thailand
       were harvested early to have longer shelf-life, and may
       ripe by itself during travel (2 to 6 weeks of shelf life).
      
       Process of durian Thailand (from production till consumption) :
       Cut durian fruit from tree, collect, distributor, Thailand exporter,
       Thailand quarantine, Airport, ride in airplane, Indonesian Quarantine,
       Indonesian importer, distributor, vendor, sit in store shelves, sold
       to buyer, then consumed by end-consumer.
       Total time:  1 to 4 weeks due to bureaucracy.


Q:   WOW !!  That's a long time, and how do these factors affect
       the quality of durian imports from Thailand?
A:   Well ...... you are welcome to see, purchase, and taste durian
       fruit imports from Thailand in fruit stores.   You often meet and
       eat fruit that is unripe, tastes funny, hard, dry, tasteless, and
       no good quality.  And yet, you have spent and wasted lots of
       money to purchase these Thailand durian imports.
       
       When durian fruits do NOT taste good, fruit-vendor doesn't care,
       arrogantly raise his hands, and will never guarantee their produce.


Q:   What durian quality do people in Thailand consume?
A:   There is no such thing as 100% tree-ripen durian fruits in Thailand.
       Because the people of Thailand themselves prefer to consume
       unripe/plain durian (70% ripe).  The physical appearance of our
       durian stem and skin themselves appear fresher, and
       better looking than durian imports.

Q:  Wow !!  Why is it so hard to purchase durian fruits directly
       from you (without need to pre-order well ahead of time) ?
A:   All of our durian fruits are 100% tree-ripen quality.  We never force
       and cut durian fruits from the tree only to satisfy the demand
       of durian from our buyers.  We can only sell durian according
       to stock-availability that fell from the tree in the plantation,
       then we sell directly to our customers.
