This programme continues where earlier CBI programmes in the Indonesian fishery sector left off. The goal is to help the participating companies become strong exporters to Europe. Another goal is to further strengthen the sector as a whole.

Fishery products are popular in Europe. European fishing fleets are not allowed to catch as much fish as they were in the past. This means Europe depends more on imports. Indonesia has a lot of good fishery products. With good export skills, Indonesian companies can do a lot of business in Europe.

CBI was already active in the Indonesian fishery sector before this programme began. We started an export coaching programme with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MOMAF) in 2008. Several companies began exporting to Europe in that period. With the current programme we want to help Indonesia´s fishery sector become a strong, steady supplier to Europe.

Project details

The programme began in 2012 and will end mid-2017. After selecting and auditing companies, we began to train and coach them. For example, we helped them get familiar with Europe´s difficult food safety standards and regulations.

Most of the participating enterprises have changed a lot during the programme. They have modernised and invested in new facilities. This will help them to meet European requirements. Already in the first year of this programme the export turnover went up very quickly.

Most of the companies have already successfully attended the leading global trade fair for fishery products, the Seafood Expo Global trade fair in Belgium.

In 2016, all of the companies in the programme will exhibit at trade fairs. They are ready for business in Europe.

Project participants and products

A total of 11 Indonesian companies are taking part in this programme. They produce a wide range of safe and sustainable premium products, such as tuna (steak, loin, saku, cube, canned), shrimp (HOSO, HLSO, PUD, easy peel, breaded, marinated, cooked and other value added), snapper, grouper, octopus, squid, canned crabmeat, canned snail, canned baby clams and canned sardines.

Meet the participants

  • You can contact CBI to find out more, or to get in touch with these exporters.
  • Another possibility is to meet these potential suppliers at the Seafood Expo Global 2017. Contact CBI for more information.


Our partner in this programme is the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MOMAF). The MOMAF is eager to develop Indonesia’s fishery sector. It facilitates our programme activities in the country. We have also created a development programme to help the MOMAF deliver better export services, such as organising trade fair participation in Europe.

Sector branding is also part of this programme. For instance, CBI advised the ministry on the development of its new website, and the accompanying tagline, ‘Indonesia seafood, naturally diverse’.
