The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) supported research into strengthening the biosecurity systems of Indonesia's smallholder commercial poultry. The University of New England-led research tested whether the development of a clean value chain would reward smallholders and others in the value chain who implement improved biosecure and hygienic practices. The trial in three Indonesian provinces (West Java, Bali and South Sulawesi) developed a niche market for poultry products produced on farms that implemented appropriate biosecurity. As part of the project, a number of films were produced, including a short film on appropriate biosecurity to produce 'Healthy Farm' poultry products.
