US factory output increases modestly in June to help boost industrial production 0.3 pct.

U.S. factories cranked out more business equipment, home electronics and autos last month, boosting manufacturing output for the second straight month.

The Federal Reserve said Tuesday that manufacturing production rose 0.3 per cent in June from May. That followed a 0.2 per cent gain the previous month. Still, the two consecutive gains barely offset production declines in March and April.

Overall industrial production, which includes factories, mines and utilities, also rose 0.3 per cent in June. Mining output increased 0.8 per cent, while utility output slid 0.1 per cent.

Manufacturing is the most critical component of industrial production. The recent gains are a hopeful sign that factories could rebound in the second half of the year.

The “report confirms the picture of a moderate recovery in the manufacturing sector,” Annalisa Piazza, senior economist at Newedge Strategy, wrote in a research note.

Manufacturers have struggled this year, providing little support to the economy. Their output is up just 1.8 per cent over the past 12 months. And factories have cut jobs in each of the past four months, shedding a total of 24,000 since February.

A key reason for the weakness is slower global growth has cut demand for U.S. exports. Europe is still in a recession and China’s economy grew from April through June at the slowest pace in more than two decades.

Manufacturing has shown improvement in Britain, France and Italy. Large Japanese manufacturers are also sounding optimistic for the first time in nearly two years.

There have been other positive signs that suggest U.S. factory production could increase in the second half of the year.

The Institute for Supply Management said that factory activity improved in June after hitting its lowest level in four years. But the closely watched manufacturing survey reported that employment fell to its lowest level since September 2009.

Factory activity in the New York region grew for the second straight month in July, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Empire State manufacturing survey.

U.S. businesses reported a strong 1.1 per cent increase in sales in May, the Commerce Department reported. Those same firms only increased their stockpiles slightly, suggesting they will need to order more goods to keep up with demand.

And Americans bought more cars and trucks, furniture and clothes in June, according to a separate Commerce report on retail spending. But consumers cut back almost everywhere else, and overall retail sales rose just 0.4 per cent last month from May.

“We continue to check every day we have to keep a minimum stock. Cessation of operations actually no impact on fuel supplies in South Sumatra. Reduced if indeed we are probably going to import one cargo of 200,000 barrels and finished (are wrong),” Hanung said.

Chairman of the Association of Meatballs: Meatballs Home Industry Feels Better

Meatballs made readily available large-scale industry. Ranging from traditional markets, modern markets, until the restaurant. However, homemade meatballs cottage industry remains the most savory. Chairman of the Merchants Association Noodles and Meatballs (APMISO) Indonesia has a reason.

According to the Chairman APMISO Trisetyo Budiman, tasty meatballs least determined by the purity of beef used. For meatballs, commonly used secondary cut of beef, such as topside, knuckle, and rump. In fact, those who use the primary cut of meat like a cube roll or tenderloin.

Sure, the price is not cheap raw materials. Moreover, a good meat for meatball ingredients is minimal fat meat. In addition, the composition of which is true meatball is more meat than flour. “8-10 kg of meat at the most appropriate sagunya 4-5 ounces, half a kilo,” Tri said when met at the office detikfood APMISO (29.04.13).

This is where the point distinction meatballs from large industries and cottage industries, namely the composition of meat and flour. Tri argues, large industries that supply supermarkets to sell their products at a low price in order to sell. This is done by increasing the flour over the meat. “More comfortable home industry for daring to give the meatballs with 99% beef,” said Tri.

Tri confident cottage industry will be equivalent to the branded companies. “It is possible, because of the taste (cottage industry) win,” he said optimistically. However, Tri recognizes small businesses still lost the other factors.

An example is the ignorance of a good business location because they do not have access to the information. “If the silent branded’ve visited, emailed, in-fuel,” he said. And he lamented, serving 20% ​​of SMEs in the malls now only discourse. “Policy makers should be encouraged, to provide support to SMEs to the next grade,” he continued.

Tri alone has venture Meatballs Ino who had scattered in Jakarta and outside the city. Most of the home-based industry-made meatballs sold in stores Meatballs Ino. However, those that are sold at retail raw.

In Jakarta, the brand meatballs are quite popular cottage industry in the traditional market is Monalisa. In Bandung, there Midshipman and Meatballs Meatballs Cihampelas. Modern market that target the middle class is usually filled with names like Meatballs Meatballs Kebun Kusno and Orange, which, according to Tri relatively large-scale industry.
