Fama to set up bazaar in Singapore

JOHOR BARU: Singaporeans can look forward to buying Malaysian agro-based products with the setting up of a bazaar in a shopping complex in the republic by the middle of next year.

The Federal Agricultural Mar­keting Authority (Fama) has identified four potential locations there for the agro-bazaar, which will be offering over 300 products made by Malaysian ent­repreneurs.

Johor Fama director Farid­ulatrash Md Mokri said the locations being considered were in Beach Road, Geylang, Bedok and Jurong.

“The setting up of the bazaar in Singapore is a stepping stone for us to further penetrate foreign markets in the near future,” he said, adding that Malaysian agro-based products were popular among Singaporeans.

Faridulatrash added that Fama was now in the midst of discussion with the mall operators in Singapore.
