The Indonesian and Dutch Governments work together on improving the food and nutrition security situation in Indonesia.

This bilateral programme focuses amongst others on the poultry meat and the dairy sub-sectors. Poultry and dairy products are among the most important sources of animal protein for the Indonesian consumers.


DIFSLIVE focusses on West Java and aims to contribute to:

(i) Increased access to safe animal protein products for urban consumers;

(ii) Increased farm income levels of smallholder dairy and poultry producers.

Target and partners

The main beneficiary groups of DIFS-Live are the small and medium scale poultry and dairy producers and urban consumers in West Java. To achieve the required impact at the level of these beneficiary groups DIFS-Live also works with public and private service providers, knowledge institutes, input suppliers, slaughterhouses and other processing companies, wholesale and retail traders active in the dairy and poultry sectors.

Our partners

DIFSLIVE is financed by the Government of the Netherlands and Dutch and Indonesian private sector partners.
