Launch of Sustainable Spices Initiative-Indonesia
The Sustainable Spices Initiative in Indonesia (SSI-I) has been launched. This multi-stakeholder platform was created to provide a space where stakeholders can work together to overcome challenges and create new opportunities in the spices sector. ICCO (Part of Cordaid) is a member of the platform and part of the Executive Board.
Indonesia is a paradise of spices and is a leader in the global market for several commodities. The country is globally well-reputed for its spices but the sector faces many challenges and the success of its reputation does not trickle down to and neither is it felt by all actors in the value chain, like smallholder farmers. To address this, the Sustainable Spices Initiative – Indonesia (SSI-I) platform was created to provide a space where stakeholders can work together to overcome challenges and create new and exciting opportunities in the sector.
The platform is driven by the private sector, CSOs, research and knowledge institutions, farmer organizations and it has a strong collaboration with the Indonesian government and other global platforms. The platform is closely affiliated with SSI Global, based in the Netherlands, and is the third platform to launch following SSI India and SSI Vietnam.
