The Indonesian economy is heavily driven by increased household consumption with the food and beverage industry greatly benefiting from this.
The country’s middle class has been a crucial driver of economic growth, with consumption rising at a pace of 12% per year since 2002, accounting for about half of the country’s total household consumption.
The shift in middle-income purchasing power is quite evident – the middle class now spends more on food items that were previously beyond their reach. Additionally, the globalization of local cuisine provides a great chance for foreign corporations to promote their products to Indonesian customers, who are becoming increasingly receptive to new tastes and sensations.
Despite the pandemic, the food and beverage sector clocked USD 2.5 billion in investment in the first half of 2021 — USD 1 billion in domestic investment (PMDN) and USD 1.5 billion in international investment (PMA).
The Indonesian government requires all food and beverage items in retail packaging, as well as food additives, to receive distribution permits from The National Agency for Drug and Food Control (BPOM) before accessing the retail market.
BPOM will issue an ML (Makanan Luar) number for imported items and an MD (Makanan Dalam) number for locally manufactured products that fulfill the appropriate distribution parameters.
Indonesia’s food safety management system includes a variety of pre-market and post-market checks. Pre-market controls involve examining a product’s food safety to verify that it complies with all safety, quality, nutrition, and labeling regulations before it is sold.
A product is permitted for distribution and given a registration approval number if it passes the appropriate conditions. After items have been disseminated in the market and/or retail outlets, post-market controls such as on-site retail sampling are done. Because of the vast region of coverage and the sheer geographic character of Indonesia, BPOM places a larger focus on pre-market control.
BPOM has issued a regulation amending the country’s food labeling regulations by implementing additional restrictions and providing clarity on food labeling requirements. This not only applies to finished food products but also to food additives and food products for further processing.
Regulation No. 20 of 2021 (an amendment to Regulation No. 31 of 2018) contains the amendments, which went into force on August 2, 2021.
The newest regulation has added certain additional criteria, which are explained below.
The deadline for finished food items to comply with the amendments is December 31, 2021, while the deadline for food additives and food products for further processing is August 2, 2022.
The new legislation requires food goods meant for further processing must be labeled with disclaimers such as “Not for Retail Sale,” “Not for Repackaging,” “Only for Hotels, Restaurants, and Catering,” etc. However, this is not applicable if the food product is sold directly from the manufacturer to the company operator who will further process it, or if the food product’s distributor is chosen directly by the manufacturer or importer.
According to Indonesia food regulation, food additive labels for retail sales must identify the maximum quantity of an ingredient permitted in a food product. If the food additive contains processing aids, they must also be included in the ingredient list.
The new law also gives explicit guidelines for evaluating food labels that may include unrelated information.
