Product Registration in Indonesia: Food and Beverage

The Indonesian food and beverage industry presents lucrative investment opportunities, as the demand for imported products has strikingly risen. Learn how to succeed in the certification process through Cekindo’s food and beverage registration services in Indonesia.

Food and Beverage Registration Services in Indonesia: BPOM Certification

Before entering the local market, all food and beverage products must be passed through a certification conducted by the Indonesian National Agency for Drug and Food Control (Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan, or BPOM). BPOM is a government agency responsible for protecting the public through the control and supervision of drugs and food. BPOM will issue the market authorization permit if your product passes the certification process. To obtain it, importers must register their product’s manufacturer before registering the product itself. BPOM will categorize imported goods into several categories based on their risk approach.

Another important point to consider is that BPOM will first ask for a Food Safety Management Certificate to ensure that your products comply with all safety and standard distribution requirements.

Requirements for F&B product registration in Indonesia

The BPOM certification process comprises several stages; the registration of a legal entity, of the manufacturer, and of the product itself. To complete these processes, applicants must provide several detailed documents, such as a Business License Number (NIB), Food Safety Management Certificate (Sertifikat Manajemen Keamanan Pangan Olahan, or SMKPO), GMP Certificate, or an equivalent certificate issued by the competent authority in the country of origin and others.

Food and Beverage Registration Services in Indonesia: Is a Halal Certification Required?

Indonesia has the world’s largest market for Islamic consumption; thus, halal certification for food and beverage products is quite important. Contact InCorp Indonesia to certify your halal products as soon as your products are registered.
