Doni is the team leader of two different teams and won 1st and 2nd place in the competition very enthusiastically explaining the innovations made with his team. By relying on creativity, a lot of reading and discussing them gave birth to two great innovations that led them to win in this competition. The first innovation is the manufacture of antiseptic products that utilize beluntas leaves as a deodorizing spray. This idea was born because the smell of the feet can reduce self-confidence, anxiety, and even stress and depression. Then the use of beluntas leaves which have not yet maximized the spirit of Doni and his team to use it as an antiseptic agent. This work led Doni Meiliyadi (TIP 2017), Muhammad Faisal Amru (TIP 2017) and Alif Muhammad Amhar (TIP 2018) to become 1st HI-BIG 2019.
The second innovation is the manufacture of ready-made sauce products to complement snacks and food substitutes by utilizing local spices. The taste of typical archipelago Cuisines such as rendang and soto has the potential to be a food supplement sauce, considering that sauces on the market today are only limited to the taste of tomatoes, chilies, and barbeque. It also encourages the development of distinctive archipelago flavors so that it is known by the world community. This work delivered Doni Meiliyadi (TIP 2017), Winda Paramita (TIP 2017) and Laras Putri (TIP 2017) and the team won 2nd place in HI-BIG 2019.
