Price, consumption, and production influence global food estimation. Food consumption and food production needs improving affordability, government policy and expert proposition in decision making. Expert have developed a scenario  combining direct weather impact on key grain producing regions, indirect impact through crop pathogens, consequences for markets, and stock of global food. Global food production tended to increase, meanwhile consumption under production. In Indonesia, production is under consumption. It is anomaly by global situation and world condition. Government policy is tariff, export, and import. Export food influenced by price food commodity is not stable, meanwhile food import tended to increase because by national food consumption increasing demand. Government policy and expert proposition to modern society, need Expert System is increasing rapidly. In Artificial Intelligence, Expert System is a computer system that emulates the decision making ability of a human expert. There are two reasoning strategies in Expert System: Forward Chaining and Backward Chaining. The aim of this paper is to identify which reasoning strategy system (Forward Chaining). This paper focus on the concept of knowledge representation in Artificial Intelligence and implementing of Forward Chaining on Food Affordability. Food Affordability used to planning of food in the future. Finally, Inference using Forward Chaining on Food Affordability, the result it is good and can be used to planning and policy on national food.
