Indonesia: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   ID2023-0016

Economic slowdowns in Indonesia’s export destination countries curbed Indonesia’s imports and consumption of wheat. Indonesia wheat imports for 2022/23 are estimated to decrease to 9.0 million metric tons (MMT) from 11.23 MMT imported in 2021/22, reflecting slower demand. Indonesia’s total consumption of wheat in 2022/23 is estimated at 9.5 MMT of wheat equivalent, lower than the previous estimate of 9.7 MMT of wheat equivalent. Meanwhile, El Nino is expected to reduce 2022/23 rice production to 52.9 MMT compared to the previous 2022/23 estimate of 53.5 MMT. In anticipation of price fluctuations, state-owned enterprise BULOG will likely fully utilize its food security mandate to import 2.0 MMT of rice in 2022/23.
