Jakarta - Cold chain system has become a major and important component to supply fisheries product around Indonesia. The rising consumer demand for perishable foods and the increasing government support for the infrastructural development of cold chains are some of the key factors expected to fuel the growth of the overall market in the next few years. However, rising maintenance, energy, and infrastructure costs are projected to curtail the growth of the market in the near future.
This matter encourages Indonesian Governments, Ministry of Maritime and Fisheries to focus on cold chain fulfillment within 2017 by allocate most of their budget through Directorate General for Strengthening the Competitiveness of Marine and Fishery Products on cold chain. With a total of USD 99 Million in 2017, they plan to divide the budget to fulfill cold chain needs such 270 ice flake machine units worth USD 12.4 M, 55 reefer trucks of cost USD 1.5 M, 3 fisheries processing unit / integrated cold storage with value of USD 12.6 M, and to fund other cold chain infrastructure such as 2 modern fish markets, 10 clean fish markets, 15 unit cold storages, 100 unit freezers, and revitalize traditional fish market around Indonesia.
