The implementation of Large Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) to prevent further spreading of Covid-19 has disrupted food production and distribution chains across Indonesia. The government is facing the difficult task of balancing the need to enforce physical distancing measures with maintaining food security where industry stakeholders are expressing challenges from increasing operational and distribution restrictions.

CIPS’ Mitigating Food Supply Chain Disruptions amidst COVID-19 Restrictions Policy Brief outlines recommended measures that can be taken by Indonesian policymakers to mitigate the risks of disruption on food distribution and consumer access to food supplies. The Brief includes an outline on food price volatility experienced before the crisis, as well as Indonesia’s existing logistical challenges that are contributing factors to Indonesia’s overall food security.
