This thesis examines the benefits of adopting food safety standards, the IndoGAP certification and Organic Standards, in the shrimp value chain in Indonesia. The study investigates the nexus between the governance structure and food safety standards, the impact of implementing IndoGAP certification and choice of marketing channel on farm performance, and the productive efficiency of IndoGAP adopters and non-adopters. Adoption of IndoGAP certification is found to increase shrimp yield and variable costs, thus reducing net profit per hectare; it does not influence the choice of marketing channel nor improve the technical efficiency of adopters.
