This paper also tries to finds out , what should be objective for East of Java dairy industry to overcome global crisis faced by the Indonesia especially East of Java Province and what should be the evolving strategies adopted by East of Java Dairy Industry to have competitive edge overcome on Indonesia and or in South East Asia Dairy Market. Dairy value chain development comprises extension, input supply (feed, bull services, and veterinary services) milk production, dairy processing and milk and milk products marketing. Through the development of large territorial producers’ organizations capable of managing milk supply in volume and quality, they would be able to take part in the management of the supply chains. To do so, the present paper suggests that farmers’ organizations need material and immaterial investments and assistance from regional public players to build new local collective capacities. The competition regime framework is an asset for the design of such public supports in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, taking the regional specificity of the markets’ institutions and collective capacities into account.
