Message by President, Singapore Food Manufacturers’ Association
In these times of increasing prevalence of fake goods and contaminated/dangerous food flooding the global market, it is reassuring to know that we have in the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) a safety net to shut out and/or reduce our exposure to such risks.
The AVA has worked closely with the food industry in providing guidance, recommendations and updates on latest food safety issues.
On our part, members of Singapore Food Manufacturers’ Association recognise the importance of food safety and food hygiene and make it our sacred duty to adopt good manufacturing, including safety, practices in our operations. Findings from the AVA’s grading assessments and inspections have clearly helped members to upgrade and improve or are adopted in their systems and processes.
Today, we can be proud that Made-in-Singapore products enjoy a good reputation and standing the world over for food safety and quality.
The publication of the Singapore Agri-Food Business Directory provides a very informative platform for manufacturers and consumers to access information on the agriculture and food manufacturing sectors and to work together to develop new and innovative products and practices. I wish to congratulate the publisher on a job well done.
