The EU has been implementing strict food laws and regulations that de facto constrain exports from Indonesia, particularly regarding agricultural products. This study uses the comparative law method and the FSO/ALOP framework to analyze how to design better strategies for Indonesia when dealing with the more stringent food laws and regulations of the EU, particularly in the case of shrimp and nutmeg. This study proposes that the choice of strategy should depend on the nature of the hazard, the existing national food control system, and the availability of the relevant international standard.
