Indonesia will be Singapore’s new source of frozen chicken


THE republic will soon be able to get chicken from Indonesia.In a Facebook post yesterday, the Singapore Food Agency said Indonesia had been approved as a new source of frozen, chilled and processed chicken meat for the republic.

It added that chickens from approved Indonesian establishments can now be imported. Singapore’s existing sources include Brazil, Thailand and Australia.

Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu said that adding Indonesia to Singapore’s list of 20 accredited countries to import chicken from was another step forward for the county’s efforts to diversify sources and enhance the resilience of its food supply.

“Global supplies will continue to face uncertainties, and we must be psychologically prepared for more disruptions and price volatility.

“While the government undertakes long-term planning and proactive actions to safeguard Singapore’s food supply, consumers and the food industry also have an important part to play,” she added.

She said being flexible with food choices and being willing to switch to alternative products when needed would boost Singapore’s resilience. — The Straits Times/ANN
