Flat Sakerah and Students of Petra 4
Christian High School
Visited Krupuk (Indonesian Cracker)
Flat Sakerah was
really happy to do his second project. On Monday, January 31, 2005, we
visited Krupuk Factory that was located at Tanggulangin, Sidoarjo, East
Java, Indonesia. From left to right : Sopranita, Eric P, David P, Dra.

First, we asked permission to the owner,
Mr. and Mrs. Tony to have a walk around the factory. Then, Mr. Tony called
a guide. He asked the guide to take us around the factory. Then, the guide
took us to the first storage room. This place was filled by a lot shrimps.
The shrimps would be used as the main ingredients of krupuk.
The second storage
contained a lot of tapiocas. Flat Sakerah turned
himself into a little child. He climbed a mountain of tapiocas. The guide
just laughed. Then, he took us to production room. This room was bigger
than two rooms before. There were a lot of machines and selves. The guide
told us how to make krupuk. Below is his explanation:
The workers put the
material which are shrimps, sugar, salt, duck eggs, tapiocas, and milk
into a mixer and mix them.
that, the mixture will be shaped into some few rolls.
That rolls are taken into some boilers and
boiled there approximately for 2 hours.
When the mixtures are cooked, they will be reshaped.
The reshaped rolls are dried up at the
field for few minutes.
Then, the rolls are taken into the cutting
room. In this place, the rolls are cut into slices by a machine called ‘Berkel’,
and then, the slices are dried.
This drying process needs a whole day to
get the best results.
The dried krupuks then are packed in the
next day. Then they will be distributed in several places.
Flat Sakerah said his
thanks to the owner. Then, we went back to school to tell the story to our
friends and you.
