Indonesia’s animal feed consumption to reach 27.6mt in 2020


In the last seven years Indonesia’s animal feed industry grew at 10-12%, according to Desianto Budi Utomo, General Chairman of The Indonesian Feed Producers Association (GPMT). The growth was consistent with the growing number of poultry breeding farms.

Therefore, more feed was needed and industry players responded by increasing the capacity of their existing feedmills, as well as setting up new feedmills. “In 2020, animal feed consumption in Indonesia is estimated to reach 27.6 million tonnes,” said Dr Utomo. This year, the positive trend will continue. Some feed companies have started operations of new feedmills, while others are constructing new facilities. GPMT has estimated that the country’s animal feed industry this year may grow at 6-7%, motivated by increasing consumption of animal protein.
