Business Description

JPFA, the second-largest feed and day-old chicks (DOC)  producer in Indonesia has five divisions, the biggest of which is chicken feed, which contributes 44% of total company revenue.

The second division is broilers, or processed chicken, which makes up 29% of sales. DOC is 11%, and the remaining 16% comprises aquaculture, cattle and beef.

The integrated poultry business altogether accounts for 85% of the company’s total sales, and chicken feed contributes over 90% of overall operating profits. JPFA needs to continue growing its DOC business, however, as farmers will usually buy chicken feed from their DOC suppliers. DOC suppliers are licensed and controlled by the Indonesian government.

The fish and cattle divisions are devoted to farming and processing related products for consumer use.

KKR, a global investment firm with USD $130 billion assets under management and deep agriculture expertise in Asia, has acquired 12% of JPFA’s shares in the second quarter of 2016 and should provide fresh and effective solutions to JPFA in the future.


Before serving in his capacity as President Commissioner at Japfa Comfeed, Syamsir Siregar served in the Indonesian military for more than 30 years.
