Singapore grants temporary exemption and streamlines approval process for poultry meat

The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has temporarily exempted Australian poultry meat exports from requiring official government veterinary antemortem and post-mortem inspection.

The exemption applies to both chilled and frozen poultry meat products. It is currently scheduled to end on 31 August 2022.

The SFA has also streamlined the listing process for Australian poultry establishments intending to export chilled poultry meat products to Singapore. This has led to several new Australian establishments receiving approval from the SFA.

Implications for Australian exporters

Australian poultry exports to Singapore

Singapore is typically a minor market for Australian poultry meat. However, when the SFA implemented a similar exemption in 2020, Singapore became Australia’s fourth most valuable poultry meat export market in that year ($7.9 million, 9% of total exports).

Singapore is a major global market for poultry meat and live chickens. From 2019 to 2021, Singapore imported an average of $381 million of poultry meat and $214 million of live chicken (TradeMap 2022).
