We realised food waste is a big issue in Indonesia. we are ranked second largest food waster globally.
Surplus food from wedding parties, corporate functions & lunch provisions, perfectly imperfect plantation produce, government shelf life regulations, emerging food retailers, domestic food
behaviours, logistics and infrastructure issues contributed to 300kg per person in average of food waste per annum.
At the same time we also found a hard yet simple fact that many are still in need of food and suffer from hunger before they sleep.
19.4 million people in Indonesia remain undernourished (source: FAO.org - 2016)
Therefore, we come as a Social Enterprise to put together the missing piece and bridge the issues
ZERO FOOD WASTE to landfill and ZERO HUNGER for Indonesia
FoodCycle Indonesia aims to break the hunger cycle of the under-privileged communities by
re-distributing untouched surplus food, re-processing imperfectly perfect produces and re-cycling
food waste. In connecting with those communities, we develop their knowledge, attitude, skills and
habits to positively impact themselves and other to create a better society of Indonesia
