Singapore’s approval of chilled chicken imports from Thailand is expected to generate USD 3 million to Thai broiler exporters this year. Sorawit Thaneto, Director General, Department of Livestock Development, said Thailand has been exporting frozen chicken to Singapore for a long time. Recently the Singapore Food Agency approved shipments of chilled chicken stored under 0-4 degrees. “We are expected to ship 1000 tonnes of chilled chicken and duck meat to Singapore this year,” said Mr Sorawit, adding that this will be positive to the overall poultry export sector of Thailand.
