Indonesia's Modern Retail Food Sector: Interaction With Changing Food Consumption and Trade Patterns

John Dyck, Andrea Woolverton and Fahwani Yuliati Rangkuti

No 127495, Economic Information Bulletin from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: Indonesia’s food market has changed in response to a changing and growing economy. The report examines changes in the food consumption pattern and measures the growth of modern food retail chains, packaged food purchases, and food imports in the world’s fourth-most-populous country. The evidence suggests that Indonesians are moving toward modern global purchasing and consumption patterns, but more slowly than in some comparable countries. Barriers to foreign and domestic commerce, affecting the development of modern food retail supply chains, are important constraints on food market change in Indonesia. Further change in Indonesia’s retail food sector will help determine future growth in imports, including from the United States.
