The province of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) is the largest pork consumer area in Indonesia. Apart from being consumed, pork is also used for essential traditional ceremonies. Despite having the largest pig population in Indonesia, the market and production of NTT porks are still not optimally exploited. Porks production is generally underdeveloped due to the use of traditional breeding methods and lack of access to pig breeds, animal feed, and high-quality supplementary medicines.
PRISMA and its partner companies collaborate to provide high-quality feed, vaccines, and supplementary medicines. In addition, we develop services that support rural distribution networks in reaching smallholder farmers, providing additional incentives and training in good livestock and cage maintenance techniques.
Moreover, PRISMA also collaborates with the NTT Animal Husbandry Agency and a number of private companies to compile a roadmap for Hog Cholera mitigation in 2017 which resulted in the death of 100,000 pigs with losses exceeding IDR 25 billion.
To December 2018, pig sector is the highest contributors to PRISMA's attainments. This sector plans to continue to be one of the leading sectors in Phase 2.
