SINGAPORE: Singapore is closely monitoring the situation on chicken imports from Malaysia and will work with stakeholders, such as importers, to minimise the impact of the chicken shortage across the Causeway.

"For example, they will activate their supply chains to increase imports of chilled chicken from alternative sources, increase import of frozen chicken from existing non-Malaysian suppliers, or draw from their stocks of poultry," said Singapore Food Agency (SFA) in its Facebook update.
