Summary

In Indonesia, food prices tend to rise before and during Ramadan, especially for chicken meat, eggs and onion, reflecting the increased seasonal demand during the fasting month.

Price fluctuations stress food and nutrition security of the most vulnerable households who spend a large proportion of their expenditures on food. At national level, 62 percent of Indonesian households can afford the least expensive nutritious diet, meaning that even without seasonal price increases, 4 out of 10 Indonesians cannot afford a balanced and nutritious food.
