Indonesia Food Export Forum:  Opportunity, Risk and Reward

AIBC is proud to present this session, which deals with the nuts and bolts of exporting food products from South Australia to Indonesia.  It’s an opportunity for SA food producers and manufacturers to gain greater insight about the market opportunities available in our nearest and fast-growing neighbour.

The session will be a facilitated panel discussion, with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions.  Topics covered will include:

An overview of the Indonesian economy;

  • Insights into Indonesia’s changing demographics and consumer behaviours;
  • Potential market opportunities for Australian food exporters;
  • Managing export logistics;
  • Managing risks on the Indonesian side.

Our panellists have a broad range of expertise in doing business with Indonesia:

  • PATRICK KEARINS is the State Director of the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade).  He was previously Australian Trade Commissioner in Jakarta for nearly 6 years, and he is knowledgeable about food exports from SA;
  • ROBERT CHONG is founder and CEO of Commodore Trading, a Sydney based company with more than 50 years’ experience in facilitating food and wine exports from Australian producers to Indonesian customers;
  • AMALIA SOSRODIREDJO is Managing Director of Decorum Group Pty Ltd, an Adelaide based sustainability and management consulting business.  She holds a law degree from an Indonesian university and a Masters of Sustainability from the University of Adelaide.  She is a member of the SA Branch Committee of the AIBC;
  • JIM McMILLAN will be the facilitator of the session.  Jim is SA State Chair of the AIBC, an experienced tax barrister, and a former international tax partner with PwC in Indonesia.  His experience includes advising on tax and business issues associated with doing business in Indonesia.
