Indonesia: treasure trove in the Pacific
More than 17,000 islands, spread across two continents: That is Indonesia. And so, it comes as no surprise that this island state in the Pacific counts as one of the five largest centres of biodiversity in the world. Its huge variety of species and the large number of endemic plants make Indonesia a highly interesting country for importers in Europe.
IPD has therefore selected a number of producers of natural ingredients (many in organic quality) offering, in particular, coconut products and essential oils and extracts. The exporters work together successfully with smallholder farmers, some of them organised in cooperatives. If you are active in the foods, pharmaceutics or cosmetics industry, then you definitely should get to know these carefully vetted IPD exporters more closely.
Indonesia is able to boast a long tradition in the wood processing sector. IPD very consciously supports the production off fast-growing, light woods sourced from Agroforestry systems. These sustainable, renewable resources generate respectable income for the local smallholders.
Especially important for importers: All products are FLEGT-licensed and can therefore be legally imported to Europe in the terms of the European Timber Regulation (EUTR).
Our products from Indonesia
The variety of natural ingredients in Indonesia is well known: Salts and spices, organic specialty rice, nectars, various coconut products, or essential oils and extracts - IPD suppliers deliver them in outstanding quality.
The repertoire of Indonesian IPD companies includes classic hardwood products such as meranti and teak, but also plywood and glue-laminated panels made from fast-growing plantation woods such as jabon and albasia.

IPD engagement in Indonesia
Indonesia is made up of over 17,000 islands in Southeast Asia. The country offers high biodiversity and is rich in natural resources. This is an advantage for products such as natural ingredients for food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Furthermore, the timber industry is traditionally well developed. The island state has long been involved in international trade, but in the past, it was mainly raw materials which were exported.
