Food processing and value chain development in Indonesia

Project Purpose

This project will review recent developments in the food processing and ingredients sectors in Indonesia, its integration within global and regional production networks and capital flows. It will identify constraints and opportunities for enhanced value chain integration with Indonesian farmers and investment opportunities for Australian and Indonesian firms.

Specific Project Objectives

The project will:

  1. Provide an economic overview of the Indonesian food processing sector,
  2. Conduct a trade analysis of policies affecting the competitiveness of Indonesian-based food processors,
  3. Apply a Global Production Network (GPN) framework to examine the position of Indonesian-based food processors within the global production networks, their ownership structures, major products, source of inputs, provision of extension supports to farmers, and key markets,
  4. Support networking between Indonesian-based food processors.

Outcomes and Deliverables

The project will generate a written report on the Indonesian food processing sector and its integration in global production networks. Considering the relative lack of previous publicly-available publications on the sector, the report will have considerable appeal to governments, development agencies, industry associations and private sector firms in both countries. In addition, modified versions of the research findings will be presented for publication in appropriate academic publications, such as the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies, which has wide readership among senior policy makers in Indonesia.

The report will be launched through an industry forum that will encourage further dialogue between research, policy, and industry stakeholders.
