Vision AWO Indonesia

“Our vision is ‘to ensure animal welfare in the Indonesian cattle industry”

About Us

The first period was in 2012. There were problems in monitoring the conformity of the abattoir used as a place to process the cattle with the supply chain lists in several importers. Forum AWO established to make sure the traceability of the cattle done and to optimize the performance audit were held efficiently. The member of Forum AWO was limited to importers only. The activity of the Forum AWO at this period was focused on Java island.

The second period was in 2018, GAPUSPINDO wants to cover the welfare issue in Sumatera Island. So Forum AWO Sumatera was establish in Dec 2018 with 11 members of committee. The Forum AWO Sumatera was actively conduct multiple training in Pekanbaru, Padang, Medan, and Palembang. These training were funded by LEP MLA, to address halal issue in operating stunning.  As time went on, it was realized that it was better for Forum AWO Sumatera and Forum AWO in Java to be united become Forum AWO Indonesia. Recent Forum AWO Indonesia’s network is a volunteer run organization, made up of importers, feedlotters & exporter staff in the supply chain. The committee is made up of 9 main committees and 21 FAWO representatives in 13 regional zones.
