[***]Based on various data in 2016, food waste in Indonesia reaches 1.3 million tons per year or per person producing 300 kg of food waste per year. If converted into rupees, the 1.3 million tons of food waste is worth 27 trillion rupees.

[***]On this occasion, Joko Widodo explained that in achieving food security there are several things that should be considered as a benchmark, namely, the warning of the World Food Organization FAO (Organization for the ‘food and agriculture) on the threat of the global food crisis, the substitution of imported foods, namely rice and maize and agricultural mechanization. with a new culture based on millennial farmers.

The president also mentioned that PTP has 13.5 million hectares and still has the possibility of being planted with food crops.

In his explanation, Eko Margiyono, while in Pangdam Jaya / Jakarta, had started using the vacant land of Teluk Naga to plant crops.

[***]In addition, Firli Bahuri explained to the President, it is possible that a criminal act of corruption may occur in connection with the conversion of land. Therefore, as part of the provision of this food barn, the KPK took the initiative to assist the government by overseeing the conversion of land functions.

[***]In its proposal submitted by Edi Permadi, the study team recommended 5 (five) proposal points to be considered by the government in achieving food security.
