Driving innovation and collective action in Indonesia’s fish value chain

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.
