Singapore Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment Desmond Tan said in a Facebook statement on 4 June that Singapore is bringing in supplies of chicken from other countries, in the wake of Malaysia’s chicken export ban.
Singapore is bringing in chilled chicken from Australia and Thailand, as well as frozen chicken from Brazil and the US.
Singapore consumers will have access to the new supplies in the weeks to come, as Tan said that Singapore’s chicken supply remains stable.
Here is Tan’s statement
Singapore’s chicken supply remains stable thanks to the quick response of our importers, distributors, and supermarkets, working with the Singapore Food Agency.
I visited a few supermarkets this morning and was glad to see that they were well-stocked with chicken — whole and parts, raw and ready-to-eat, frozen and processed, as well as some chilled.
We will be expecting more supplies of both chilled chicken from Australia and Thailand, and frozen chicken from sources such as Brazil and the U.S. in the coming weeks.
So rest assured, there is adequate supply of chicken for everyone if we continue to do our purchases normally.
