Singapore imports the vast majority of our food from across the globe, a strategy that has sustained us over the years, but may be inadequate with the threat of climate change and other challenges such as disease outbreaks.
Currently, we import over 90 percent of our food from over 170 countries and regions, and have taken steps to help homegrown businesses grow food in other countries, allowing businesses with farms overseas to export food back to Singapore.
To strengthen Singapore’s food security, SFA is pursuing three broad strategies:
- [30 by 30] increasing local production - to provide buffer supply in event of overseas supply disruptions
- Diversifying our sources of food imports - to reduce risk of reliance on any single food supply source
- Growing food overseas - to help local companies expand abroad and export food back
Besides helping our farms to increase their productivity, we also encourage consumers to buy local produce by raising public awareness of the quality and freshness of local produce.
What is local produce?
Local produce refers to food that is grown within your locality and in line with accepted good practices. We have various local farms in Singapore producing foods such as eggs, vegetables and fish.
