Organik Indonesia: First ever, locally produced organic cheese launched in Indonesia

30. august 2023 organic
Production of the first ever locally produced organic cheese was celebrated in Indonesia this week. The cheese is the tangible result of a project bringing together Danish agricultural expertise with local Indonesian partners to improve the Indonesian dairy sector and showcase the opportunities within organic dairy farming. First step in the project was capacity building and support for the local farmers in the dairy cooperative KPSP as they transitioned from conventional to organic farming. This was carried out by Danish innovation company SEGES Innovation and ICOEL with valuable support from the Indonesian organic certification body LeSOS, the NGO Bina Swadaya, and the cooperative itself.
