JASIN: Dodol entrepreneurs in Melaka are encouraged to pioneer modern methods of production using new technology to ensure the traditional food could be produced faster and in larger quantity, to penetrate the international market.

Melaka Chief Minister Adly Zahari said although the method of making dodol must be enhanced using more sophisticated machines, entrepreneurs must also not forget the traditional methods used all this while.“The state government always encourages dodol entrepreneurs to modernise the traditional food industry such as this because the sale of the snack has reached the international level.

“We hope that more dodol products can be produced in the future and more people contribute ideas to help expand the industry,” he said at a dodol-making programme in Kampung Merlimau Tengah here.

On the programme, Adly said the role played by non-governmental organisations and Village Community Management Councils in organising such events provided more opportunities to dodol makers to modernise the methods of making it. — Bernama
