Singapore, May 14, 2023
Japfa announces the delivery of 23,000 live birds via sea to Singapore. The chickens were raised by PT Ciomas Adisatwa in Bintan, Kepulauan Riau. PT Ciomas Adisatwa is a subsidiary of PT Japfa Comfeed Indonesia Tbk, which in turn is a subsidiary of Japfa Ltd. This is the first time live chickens are delivered to Singapore from Indonesia. This shipment is a notable achievement and will serve to test a new important option to supply fresh chicken to Singapore, with the birds transported live via sea and slaughtered in the destination country.
Tan Yong Nang, Chief Executive Officer of Japfa, said: “We are pleased to contribute to Singapore’s food security strategy by providing fresh chicken to local consumers. As a leading industrialised agri-food player, with more than 50 years of experience in producing staple protein foods in Asia, we can meet Singapore’s demand and standards based on our attention to quality and our vertically integrated business model from poultry feed production and breeding to farming and food processing. This shipment is the result of the combined efforts of Japfa, Singapore and Indonesia’s authorities, and we look forward to expanding further our contribution to feed Singapore consumers with nutritious proteins”.
