Abstract

The development of food security in Indonesia still faces various problems. Dealing with those problems, the role of research and development institutions such as the Indonesia Institute of Sciences (LIPI) is needed. LIPI as a government R & D institution is expected not only to produce knowledge, but also to play an active role in solving various problems of the nation including in the field of food security. The results of the evaluation of LIPI's activities show that it has produced significant and strategic research outputs. However, only a few have been successfully implemented to solve food problems. Therefore, a study of Research Priority Setting (RPS) is needed so that the LIPI research activities program in the future will produce more research outputs that play a role in providing solutions in this food sector. The purpose of this RPS study is to provide direction so that LIPI research in the future can contribute more to solving problems in the food sector. This study starts from the activity stage to identify strategic issues that need to be resolved through R & D activities. This identification activity is carried out through a round table discussion involving stakeholders. The next stage is to determine researches that need to be prioritized by LIPI in the next five years using the Delphi method. From the study, it is concluded that in the next five years LIPI's R & D activities should be focused on: (1) the development of biological organic fertilizer, (2) the development of local food materials, (3) the development of Germplasm, (4) the functional food development, and (5) the development of modern agriculture.  JEL Classification: D24, L26, Q12

Abstract

Indonesia is a country having abundant natural resources, including nutritious plants as a source of food and medicine. Along with the increasing public awareness of the importance of healthy living, there is a great shift in the demand of food. At present, people do not only want foods that have good nutritional composition as well as attractive appearance and taste, but also the ones that have certain physiological functions for the body. The foods that have such functions are known as functional foods. One ingredient that has the potential to be developed into functional food is mocaf flour. It is made from cassava which is made from the fermentation principle by modifying the cassava cells. This study aims to reveal the conditions for the development of the functional food industry made from mocaf flour in Indonesia using the value chain approach. This study was a qualitative research by using multiple case studies along the value chain. The data were collected from review of secondary data, in-depth interviews, and observations in each case study. The case study locus was the center of the mocaf-based food industry in West Java. The results showed that (i) the mocaf-based functional food industry in Indonesia was not developed; (ii) the development of mocaf-based industries was constrained by the high cost of cassava raw materials; (iii) the productivity of cassava plants was still low; (iv) the role of R & D institutions was very much needed; and (v) government intervention is needed.JEL Classification:  L88, O00, Q18
