Indonesia is the largest beef producer in Southeast Asia, with an annual production of 496,302 tons (Agricultural Statistics, 2018). However, local demand for beef exceeds the domestic production capacity, and as a result Indonesia remains dependent on imported beef. Due to this, there are many opportunities to develop the local beef market in Indonesia.

By December 2018, the beef cattle sector had shown a positive contribution in terms of raising farmers' quality of life and partner's business profits. This sector continues to be a leading sector in the second phase.
