INDONESIA - Two state-owned companies – PT Rajawali Nusantara Indonesia (RNI) and PT Berdikari – have signed an agreement to develop the livestock industry, specifically cattle and chicken breeding, as well as the animal feed industry.
PT RNI president director B Didik Prasetyo and PT Berdikara president director Eko Taufik Wibowo signed the agreement in Jakarta on Thursday.
“Our big mission is to develop the business and ensure the availability of protein resources from animals for the people. We see a great opportunity in this synergy,” Mr Didik said in a press statement, adding that the cooperation supported the government’s program to boost protein consumption.
Citing data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), he said the consumption of animal protein in Indonesia amounted to just 53.91 grams per capita per year, below to the recommended minimum of 57 grams.
PT Berdikari is appointed by the government to develop the country’s livestock industry, while PT RNI also has experience in the industry and owns large farms.
