Indonesia regulates broiler supply & demand


Indonesia’s Agriculture Ministry has released the revision of the regulation of chicken supply, distribution and monitoring, which is expected to protect independent farmers from unfair competition. Local production of breeding and commercial chicken and imports of breeding stock will be calculated based on the national production plan. Of the total commercial broiler DOC production, 50% has to be allocated for independent producers/farmers.

The quality of the DOC has to be certified by a product certification agency (LSPro) appointed by the Agriculture Ministry. Finally, a producer of more than 300,000 birds/week has to set up a processing plant and a cold chain facility. Sigit Prabowo, Chairman of the National Poultry Farmers Association (PPUN) said: “We appreciate the revised regulation and we will monitor the implementation.”
