Message by Chairman, Poultry Merchants’ Association, Singapore
First of all, it is an honour and a pleasure again, on behalf of the Poultry Merchants’ Association, Singapore, (PMA) to I extend my heartiest congratulations to Marshall Cavendish Business Information Pte Ltd on the publication of the Singapore Agri-Food Business Directory 2018.
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) played a key role in assisting the local poultry processors in establishing the PMA. The PMA looks forward to continue collaborating with the AVA to further ensure safety and security in the poultry industry.
Our role is to help promote and support the growth of Singapore’s poultry trade; strengthen the networking among PMA members; and strengthen the relations within the industry. The PMA is the bridge that fosters closer relationship between our members and government agencies, creating a better understanding for both parties.
As I mentioned above, the PMA’s mission for food safety and food security will always be our highest priority. Going forward, we also emphasize on how to strengthen and improve the cold chain system in order to better serve the local poultry market. We will work to focus on supply chain management as well as continue to identify other sources of supply around the world.
In conclusion, I take this opportunity to thank the AVA for its relentless efforts and relevant contributions. Best wishes on the success of publishing the Singapore Agri-Food Business Directory 2018!
