ILDEX realizes the importance of waste management and sustainable production for the long term success of the livestock industry

Jakarta – Bangkok, May 2019 – ILDEX Indonesia, the international Livestock, Dairy, Meat Processing, and Aquaculture Exposition will return from 18 to 20 September 2019 at ICE, Jakarta, Indonesia. The organizer, VNUE AP, has the new idea to look to the long term success of the livestock industry by establishing a new theme, namely “waste management and sustainable production” which are both key growth factors.

For decades, Indonesia has been the largest economy in Southeast Asia. The middle class is set to become a prominent force in the country because of their huge population and their strong prospects for income growth. Investors will find that Indonesia has booming demand for livestock products and an abundance of agricultural and natural resources.

As Southeast Asia’s largest country (and still the world’s fourth most populated at around 269 million people), Indonesia has witnessed a major boom in demand for livestock products such as red meat, milk, eggs and beef, and cattle. Therefore, the opportunity for the livestock business is immense and ready for all the businesspersons and investors to further explore. However, in 2014 alone, Indonesia produced 3.2 million tons of plastic waste with over 1.3 million tons of plastic ending up in rivers and oceans. With poor waste management strategies, this makes Indonesia one of the world’s largest plastic waste producers and the world’s second largest marine plastic polluter as well. In response to the waste crisis, the Indonesian Government has committed to maximizing its efforts to resolve the country’s waste issue, especially for marine debris. The Government aims to achieve a 70% decrease in waste by 2025.

ILDEX Indonesia 2019 will still focus on the animal protein production chain. Indonesia has witnessed a major boom in demand for livestock products such as red meat, milk, eggs and beef and cattle. However, in 2014 alone, Indonesia produced 3.2 million tons of plastic waste with over 1.3 million tons of plastic ending up in rivers and oceans. With poor waste management strategies, this makes Indonesia one of the world’s largest plastic waste producers and the world’s second largest marine plastic polluter as well. In response to the waste crisis, the Indonesian Government has committed to maximizing its efforts to resolve the country’s waste issue, especially for marine debris. The Government aims to achieve a 70% decrease in waste by 2025.

As a result, there is an urgent need for locally-owned and community-driven solutions such as accessible and cost-effective infrastructure for waste management. For technology development for waste management, Indonesia still lags behind developed countries such those in Europe and America. The need for a proper waste management system is rapidly increasing. There are also other projects involving waste separation and regular collection to help address Indonesia’s waste crisis. These projects provide jobs, income and a cleaner environment for local communities.

 

Panadda Kongma, Head of the Competent Livestock Center said that ‘This is why a new “Waste Management” pavilion has been added as one of the highlights of ILDEX Indonesia. This is because we believe that in order to have a healthy business life cycle, it has to be sustainable. Sustainability means that the local community and environment have to be taken into consideration.’

In this regard, waste management and sustainable production are key to long term success for livestock investment in Indonesia. ILDEX will also maintain its focus on the Meat, Dairy, Cattle, Aquaculture, Feed, Farm production, and Animal Health business sectors.
