Australia's top ten export destinations – Indonesia

Australian fruit, nut and vegetable exports

Indonesia is a growing market for Australia, now sitting as our sixth-largest trading partner for horticulture. In July 2020, Australia and Indonesia entered into a comprehensive economic partnership agreement: IA-CEPA. IA-CEPA created a framework to unlock potential in a bilateral economic partnership, fostering economic cooperation.

Indonesian consumers are diversifying their diets, due to increased awareness in health, and it is projected the fastest-growing segments will include fresh fruits. Proximity of Australia to Indonesia means that it appeals to consumers who understand the produce will be of good quality and freshness.

Australia does face challenges with the Indonesian market, including:

  • Quotas on fresh produce
  • Indonesia is an agriculture-producing nation, with their government seeking to protect this production
  • Competition from other close markets, including China.

Nevertheless, Indonesia’s large and growing population, with a fast-expanding middle class, provides an opportunity for Australian exports with demand for food expected to quadruple by 2050.
