Recognising that the problem of food loss in the fish value chain cannot be tackled in siloes and requires coordinated action, the Indonesia Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (I-PLAN) was created in 2018 to bring together the expertise and resources of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Marine Affairs and
Fisheries and a diverse range of business, academic and civil society organisations.
From the outset, I-PLAN set itself three objectives:
- to improve the domestic supply of nutritious food by reducing postharvest losses of fresh fish
- to increase access to improved postharvest technologies and best practices and enable businesses to take advantage of market opportunities
- to bring together key stakeholders to align resources and know-how on reducing food loss.
