Indonesia: FAS Jakarta Obtains Fresh Food of Plant Origin Recognition Renewal
On January 5, 2018, the Ministry of Agriculture issued decree No. 35/2018, renewing U.S. Fresh Foods of Plant Origin (FFPO) recognition for an additional three years. FFPO recognition provides faster customs processing times, less cumbersome documentation processes for U.S. exporters and access to Jakarta’s Tanjung Priok Port. In 2016, more than $1.3 billion of U.S. agricultural exports benefitted from Indonesia’s FFPO recognition.
