Central Lampung is a pineapple production center that supplies fresh pineapples for national demand. On the other hand, Sub-optimal production and marketing, which are still controlled by middlemen, are the main problems in pineapple development. The research aims to identify the potential and needs for innovation, and to formulate a strategy for developing pineapple based on farmer cooperations. The research was conducted from September 2020 in Punggur District, Lampung. Data collection was carried out through a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) and in-depth interviews with local champions. The SWOT approach as well as IFE and EFE analysis have been determine to the best strategy. The results showed that farmers used the Queen variety from 1970, so that, the quality production decreased. The innovations needed are mainly related to cultivation (irrigation, crop rotation, control of pests). The existence of Farmer-Owned Enterprises in collaboration with BUMDES has the potential to be reactivated into a farmer corporation. The IFE and EFE analysis showed that the strategy that needs to be taken is the development strategy (SO strategy). Therefor, Policies that need to be followed is increasing: The role and skills of extension workers; and the role of farmers group or corporation in pineapple production and marketing.
