Sustainable Food System

Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD) with support from FAO Indonesia conducted study on mobilizing involvement and investment of private sectors for inclusive food systems to support SDGs in Indonesia.

To analyse the roles of private sector in the sustainable food system that can support the achievement of SDG 2 in Indonesia, this study uses five commodity samples which are soybean, coffee, shrimp, sheep/ goat (small ruminants), and mangoesteen. The selection of these commodities is based on the price stability, potential market at both domestic and overseas, domestic nutrition needs, and climate suitability, local wisdom and consideration of environmental sustainability. The recommendations of this study touch different aspects of the whole value chain of the selected commodities from production, agregation and procession, distribution and consumption.

"Pursuing sustainable development makes companies more competitive, more resilient and adaptable in a fast-changing world, and more prepare for the future."
