Tempeh to be proposed as UNESCO cultural heritage

Tempeh will be proposed as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage in 2021.

Made Astawan, head of the Indonesian Tempeh Forum, said tempeh must first be acknowledged as a national cultural heritage.

“We are grateful that tempeh was recognised by the government of Indonesia as a national cultural heritage last October. It convinced us to aim for UNESCO 2021 to attain international recognition,” he told Tempo on Tuesday.
