The Indofood Posyandu program has been highly effective in raising nutritional awareness and reducing malnutrition and stunting in Indonesia. The program covered Posyandus located at areas surrounding some of the facilities operated by the Agribusiness, Bogasari and CBP Group across Indonesia.
In 2020, we continued to train our Posyandu cadres and share information on “The Importance of the First 1000 Days of Life” and “Clean and Healthy Lifestyle Guideline” to all Posyandu visitors. The Posyandus were only operational in the first quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Nutrition & Special Foods Division under the CBP Group conducted home visits together with doctors, midwives, and healthcare volunteers to provide services to women and babies in the villages. This has led to a 40% increase in visits by healthcare professionals as compared to 2019.
