Singapore Mulling Purchase of Poultry from Indonesia

June 17, 2022, 08.26 PM – Singapore is considering the purchase of poultry from Indonesia after Malaysia suspended chicken exports, The Straits Times reported on Wednesday, June 15.

Citing the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), the report stated that the agency has been working closely with Indonesia “to explore the accreditation of Indonesia as a potential source of chicken import."

Indonesia has never sold chickens to Singapore. Indonesia has only exported around 50,000 salted eggs monthly.

It was reported that the SFA representatives have been in Indonesia to assess some farms, slaughterhouses, and processing facilities, such as in Central Java and West Java.

Whether Indonesia will export live or frozen chicken to Singapore, how much it can supply and when the export will start, all depends on the result of the survey.

Malaysia banned chicken exports on June 1 to stabilize production and prices within the country.

Singapore has purchased more supplies of chilled chicken from Australia and Thailand, as well as frozen chicken from other sources in Brazil and the United States.

On June 3, CS Tay, a local Singapore food distributor, said they had secured a deal to bring 10 times the supply of chicken from Thailand at any time, up to 75,000 packs of chilled chicken a week.

On June 14, Kee Song, a certified chicken supplier in Singapore, announced that Malaysia’s ban on the export of live free-range chicken and black chicken had been lifted.
