"The poultry industry is in "Expansionary Mode On" or a time of development and expansion. Asian poultry industry growth is exceptional, with countries like Indonesia in the forefront of poultry industry expansion," he claims.
The source of growth in Indonesia’s poultry industry can be attributed to population growth, urbanization, increasing buying power of the middle class, shifts in consumption from “staple foods” to higher valued commodity (meats, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruits). Aside from that, prices of chicken is the most affordable animal protein and this supports the food security infrastructure (availability, affordability, acquisition, utilization and food safety/quality).
Moreover, with recent coop technology in modern closed house, farm productions are more productive and efficient than ever. Consumers appreciate the importance of better poultry product marketing, especially in characteristics regarding quality, consistency, differentiation, segmentation and convenience.
Although the prospect of the poultry industry is promising, there are challenges that need to faces in the industry. Part of which is the globalization of industries, rarity of resources, animal right issues, global climate change issues, oversupply, price instability, threats from imports, high costing feed, inconsistency of quality feed supply, quality standard in managing poultry farm.

“To create simultaneous and equal growth, partnership between big companies and small scaled farmers need to be intensified to ensure continued increase in quality so it will benefit and enlarge all businesses involved,” he asserts. (IAAS/RCD)
