Indonesia. Feed industry to grow 8% in 2017


During the first half of this year, Indonesia’s animal & aqua feed consumption reached 7.9 million tonnes and 849,000 tonnes, respectively, according to the Indonesian Feed Producers Association (GPMT). Hudian Pramudyasunu, GPMT Secretary General said consumption is targeted to reach 17.2 million tonnes and 1.6 million tonnes by the end of this year.

Next year the association estimated the feed industry to grow at 8%. “The main challenge in this industry is raw materials especially corn. We expect the government to prepare a buffer stock for corn as local supplies are not completely predictable,” Mr Pramudyasunu said.
