On 18 October 2012, the Indonesian parliament passed a new Food Law. The provisions include 'self-sufficiency' and 'food sovereignty' as the first two principles by which Indonesia's food policy should be governed (art.2 of the law).
According to article 5, the policy's 'scope (...) includes:

  • a. Food planning;
  • b. Food availability;
  • c. Food affordability;
  • d. consumption of Food and Nutrition;
  • e. Food Security;
  • f. Food label and advertisement;
  • g. control (...)'.

Also, article 36 of the law stipulates that 'Food Import can only be implemented if domestic Food Production is not sufficient and/or cannot be produced domestically.'
The regulation came into force on 17 November 2012.
