National Jamu Day 2022 is celebrated on 27 May. Because the post-pandemic conditions are getting better this year, the 2022 National Jamu Day should not only be cheered on social media. We can take advantage of the National Jamu Day by visiting places or areas that have a close relationship with jamu.


National Jamu Day was first commemorated in 2008 after being stipulated by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY). The declaration of the National Jamu Day aims to create a moment that can strengthen the consumption of jamu among the people.


Through the National Jamu Day, it is expected that jamu can be increasingly known by society. In reality, there are still many who think that jamu is only enjoyed by the elder generations and has not touched the younger generation yet. But this has started to change, because there have been many contemporary cafes that serve jamu as the main menu. Not only serving traditional jamu, these contemporary cafes also innovate by creating jamu menus that are more attractive to the younger generation.

National Jamu Day is also expected to encourage more scientific jamu, so that the benefits in jamu are not always a one-sided claim, but can also be justified scientifically.
