The food self-sufficiency performance in West Java Province faces a very complex challenge in line with the decline in agricultural land area and population growth. This study aims to evaluate the performance of food self-sufficiency in West Java Province during the period of 2007 - 2015 using the indicator of the ratio of food self-sufficiency. The focus of this research is directed to rice commodities. The analysis in this study used a descriptive analysis of food self-sufficiency performance and the factors that influence it. The analysis shows that although the area of agricultural land was declining, rice production tends to increase. This was driven by rising rice cropping index and increasing productivity. On the other hand, rapid population growth in West Java Province encourages increased consumption of rice. The growth rate of rice consumption was greater than the amount of rice production, especially since the period 2011 - 2015 leads to a decrease in food self-sufficiency in West Java Province which was illustrated by the trend of decreasing the ratio of food self-sufficiency.
