n behalf of the Poultry Merchants’ Association, Singapore (PMA), I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to Marshall Cavendish Business Information Pte Ltd on the publication of the Singapore Agri-Food Business Directory 2019.
We are honoured and privileged to be alongside the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) on the establishment of the PMA. The partnership has successfully steered the trade to a whole new era of co-ordination and co-operation for the collective good of the industry. We look forward to more collaboration with the AVA to further ensure the safety and security of the poultry industry.
The PMA has come a long way in fulfilling its main objectives of promoting and supporting the continuous growth of Singapore’s poultry industry. We have established committees to address issues of common concern, strengthening the networking and relations among the PMS members. More importantly, the PMA helps to bridge the many collaborations between our members and government agencies, further improving the understanding between both parties.
As before, the PMA will continue to give priority to the food safety and security aspects of the industry, always emphasising on the best possible cold chain system and supply chain management to better the high standards expected from the local poultry trade.
None of this would have been possible without the unwavering confidence and support rendered to us by the AVA. With its support, our journey towards excellence will continue with the same vigour and energy, and we are ready to meet the challenges that will come our way.
Best wishes to the successful publishing of the Singapore Agri-Food Business Directory 2019!
