NEW ZEALAND: Singapore offers new export opportunities for NZ pork

New Zealand pork producers are hoping that a recent visit from a Singaporean trade delegation will open up new export opportunities for their products. According to the New Zealand Pork Industry Board, a ten-person delegation from Singapore visited the country earlier this month to explore opportunities to source pork and derived products.

New Zealand pork producers are hoping that a recent visit from a Singaporean trade delegation will open up new export opportunities for their products.

According to the New Zealand Pork Industry Board, a ten-person delegation from Singapore visited the country earlier this month to explore opportunities to source pork and derived products.

Pork Industry Board CEO Angus Davidson said that the delegation included representatives from companies that together import some 80% of the pork shipped to Singapore each year. It was headed up by Jack Koh, president of the Singapore Meat Traders’ Association.

There is currently a shortfall of pigs arriving for processing in Singapore, so the opportunity is there. “Their current supply is approximately 1,000 pigs per day short of meeting requirements,” said Davidson, who will make a return visit to Singapore later this week to move negotiations on.
