Understanding the Requirements of Food Additives in Indonesia

Tassa Agustriana
Thursday , 12th Jan 2023

Since food additives are consumed through processed foods, food additives are strictly supervised and required to undergo various safety tests before being placed on the market in many countries. In Indonesia, the Food and Drugs Authority, which is knowns as Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan or BPOM, regulates food additives through a well-established safety management mechanism, which required a certain set of complex regulations. These barriers, including language, make it difficult for many foreign companies to learn compliance requirements and enter the Indonesian market.

To help overseas enterprises better understand Indonesia's food additive requirements, Tassa Agustriana, a founder of Thrive Food Consulting, an Indonesian-based independent consulting service, that also covers Scientific Regulatory Affairs and Compliance, will provide a comprehensive understanding of Indonesia's food additive regulations, including the definition and classification of food additives, approval, and registration of new food additives for trading and distribution purpose, and the most up-to-date regulation.
