Natural ingredients, a lot of wood – all legal

Indonesia has positioned itself well for Europe’s market and the future. The country offers a multitude of high-quality products for the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sector. In the field of legal timber Indonesia offers European importers a high degree of legal certainty and still greater business potential.

The Import Promotion Desk has chosen Indonesia as one of its partner countries and will set you up with carefully selected and tested suppliers.

OUR PRODUCT GROUPS FROM INDONESIA:

Natural ingredients for food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics:

  • diverse salts ans spices such as cinnamon
  • essential oils and extracts, e.g. vanilla, ginger
  • various coconut products, e.g. coconut oil, sugar, nectar syrup, chips, water, powder
  • seaweed products, cacao, organic speciality rice etc.

Technical wood:

  • classic hardwood products, e.g. Meranti and Teak
  • products made from fast-growing plantation woods, e.g. Jabon and Albasia.

In 2013 Indonesia was the first Asian country to sign a voluntary partnership agreement (VPA) with the EU for timber from legal sources (FLEGT-VPA). It has an obligatory and comprehensive documentation and certification system that includes forest enterprises. EU importers thus enjoy a high degree of legal certainty when they purchase timber and timber products.

Opportunity for foreign trade: opening up new supply markets virtually

Import Promotion Desk supports companies with virtual fairs and B2B meetings

Bonn/Berlin, 24.11.2020 – The corona pandemic poses challenges for companies worldwide: contact restrictions make international trade relations and the search for new products and reliable suppliers more difficult. Many of the international trade fairs that serve as important contact exchanges have been postponed. Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the import promotion initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), has developed a variety of online services to continue its work. In virtual meetings and trade fairs, IPD experts support German and European companies in opening up new supply markets and connect them with selected producers from developing countries and emerging nations.

Success Stories

 
Success Story

Coconut flower sugar – a niche product from Indonesia

The ambitious start-up company KULAU GmbH from Berlin has specialised in importing coconut-based products. The name of the enterprise speaks for itself: in Papua-New Guinea’s creole language Tok-Pisin, “kulau” means “young, green coconut”.

The company exclusively sells sustainable, naturally manufactured fair-trade organic products. In its selection of suppliers, KULAU adheres to the highest standards. Both in regard to product quality, good working conditions and environmentally-friendly cultivation methods at the plantations, the German importer makes high demands on its foreign partners. Professional sourcing is therefore very important to the company when it comes to locating suitable buying markets for its products in tropical countries. This is where the help of the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) came in handy. The agency introduced KULAU to the suitable partner, saving the company a lot of time and money.

 
Success Story

Sustained export promotion: Coconut sugar from Java

“When we entered the export market with coconut sugar we had collaborations with 100 small farmers – today it is already over 300,” says Amir Sudjono, founder of the company PT COCO SUGAR INDONESIA with headquarters in Purwokerto on the island of Java. The Indonesian firm has been participating in the export promotion programme of the Import Promotion Desk since 2015 and has in that time developed to become an international producer and exporter.
