Sudirman FX, Chairman of the Indonesian Feed Producers Association (APPI), said feed millers will include the tax in their production cost.

As a result, the price of feed, for instance broiler feed, will increase from $0.48 to $0.51 per kg.

“This price increase will then increase the price of chicken and eggs,” said Sudirman. He added that the association hopes the Ministry of Agriculture can discuss with the Ministry of Finance to remove the tax.
