FOREWORD 3-5 October 2018 Jakarta, Indonesia MESSAGE FROM Ir. Adhi S. Lukman Chairman Indonesia Food & Beverage Association (GAPMMI) Ladies and gentlemen, on behalf of the Indonesia Food & Beverage Association (GAPMMI), it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Fi Asia 2018. Established in 1976, GAPMMI is the leading voice on food and beverage issues in Indonesia. With more than 400 members, from small to large organisations, GAPMMI serves as a source of information on the food and beverage industry to the media, communicating a positive image and a unified voice for the Indonesian industry. The organisation also helps protect and develop its members’ businesses by influencing public policy and providing them with valuable assistance and information on food safety, labelling, regulatory assistance, and networking opportunities. I believe that Fi Asia 2018 will help us achieve our objectives of promoting Indonesia’s rapidly growing food and beverage industry, strengthening cooperation to find new and mutually beneficial partnerships, enhancing product quality and providing updates about advances in food ingredients. Working together, we can achieve more. This year, the Industry Ministry of Indonesia set national investment targets of IDR 53.18 trillion for the food industry and IDR 10.07 trillion for the beverage industry, for a total of about USD 4.6 billion, up by 6.7% year-on-year. I believe that these targets are realistic and clearly demonstrate that Indonesia’s food and beverage market remains attractive to both local and foreign companies. This investment shows that local and foreign companies remain confident in the future of Indonesia’s food and beverage market. Based on the data from Indonesia Ministry of Industry, the industry growth in 2017 was 9.23%, quite far above from the National PDB growth which is approximately 5.07%. Even, this industry includes as one of the priority industries in the implementation industry 4.0 which is proclaimed by the Ministry of Industry. This industry sector is considered having readiness and potential to give big leverage in the achievement of aspirations set. I congratulate UBM for continuing to organize this specialized large-scale of food and beverage exhibition that focuses solely on ingredients and additives for food product development, a truly unique and effective model for industry and academia alike. I wish Fi Asia significant growth in the years to come. GAPMMI hopes that our strategic partnership will create more and more values for the food industry and consumers in Indonesia. On behalf of GAPMMI, I wish each of you every success as you innovate and grow your businesses. Thank you. Ir. Adhi S. Lukman Chairman Indonesia Food & Beverage Association (GAPMMI) 5 Fi India Hi China Hi Japan Hi Europe Hi Korea
