PT. Kaneka Foods Indonesia, a joint venture of Mitsubishi Corporation and Kaneka Corporation, is investing in a new factory for filling and other processed oil products for confectionery and bakery markets.  

PT. Kaneka Foods Indonesia (KFI) will manufacture filling and other processed oil products such as margarine in a new factory in Bekasi, Indonesia. A joint-venture of Mitsubishi Corporation and Kaneka Corporation, PT. Kaneka is making the investment as it targets the country’s confectionery and bakery ingredients market. Its factory will have a production capacity of 15,000 metric tons per year, and begin commercial production by Q1 2020. The project is worth 5 billion yen.

Aside from the production of new products, KFI expects to combine product knowledge and technical applications based on customers' specific needs, and accelerate product development. KFI will spread the culture of Japanese style attractive confectionery and bakery around the Asian market to achieve a target of 10 billion yen in sales.

The confectionery and bakery markets are expected to grow and expand steadily in Asia including Indonesia alongside the region’s rising population and rise in the number of middle- to high-end consumers.

In Indonesia, baked products are increasingly part of daily life-styles, and where the consumption of baked goods has been showing a compound annual growth rate of 5%. KFI has, since 2013, been responding to customer needs by developing high-quality products that align with local tastes. As a result of this effort, KFI has achieved business expansion, including the successful introduction of a kind of soft bread with an unfamiliar texture to the Indonesian market.
