SINGAPORE: Singapore imports 80 per cent of beef and beef products from Australia, New Zealand and Brazil.
Beef from Europe, in the form of whole beef cuts, constitutes less than 0.5 per cent of Singapore’s supply.
The Agri—Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) has an integrated meat safety system of accreditation and post—arrival inspections to ensure compliance with food safety, veterinary public health and animal health requirements.
Only meat imports from sources accredited by AVA are allowed into Singapore.
AVA regularly conducts tests to ensure that meat imports are not substituted or adulterated with undeclared meat from other animal species.
To date, AVA has not found any horse meat in any of the meat products imported into Singapore.
