Aflatoxin is a dangerous secondary metabolite produced by some species in the Aspergillus genus. Aflatoxin contamination is considered as critical indicator for good quality of agricultural product, due to its carcinogenic effect to human and animal health. The contamination of aflatoxin in maize occurred at pre- and post-harvest stage when the environment condition is optimum for the mycotoxin growth. The contamination is possibly appeared along distribution chain from field to maize storage. However, the high risk of aflatoxin contamination point along maize distribution chain still unknown. Therefore, identification of high risk aflatoxin contamination along maize distribution chain for preventive handling is necessary. In this study, the aflatoxin contamination risk was determined along maize distribution chain, from field to maize storage. This study was conducted in one of maize enterprise in East Lampung. The distribution chain scope starts from harvest in the field until the maize ready to sell to feed company, without drying treatment. The distribution chain point was determined become 3 point: maize field (Point 1), before threshing/corncob in storage (Point 2) and before send to feed company/maize threshed (Point 3). The maize kernel was collected from each point for further analysis. Our results suggested for maize enterprise actor to put concern in maize handling at storage after threshing, especially controlling in environmental storage condition and time storage, to reduce aflatoxin contamination.
