Per capita annual consumption of poultry meat is expected to increase from 10.9 kg (2017) to approximately 15 kg (2023) and egg consumption from 5.6 kg or 89 eggs (2017) to approximately 7.1 or 113 eggs (2023), driven by increasing purchasing power of its growing middle-class which is more and more consciousness about food quality & safety and are changing their preference towards protein-rich and value-added products.
The FoodTechIndonesia consortium comprises leading complementary (non-competitive) parties from various steps in the Dutch poultry value chain, which enables to provide Indonesian companies integrated solutions.
