This signals the Governments commitment to strengthen food security and safety from farm to fork by consolidating all the food-related expertise from the then-Agri-food and Veterinary Authority (AVA), National Environment Agency (NEA), and Health Sciences Authority (HSA) into a single entity.The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)s Global Food Security Index (GFSI) has consistently ranked Singapore within the top five countries over the past five years. In fact, we have been ranked first in the last two years. This can be largely attributed to our high GDP per capita and reflects our ability to purchase safe, quality food from overseas. However, Singapore, being a net importer, is vulnerable to external shocks and global trends that impact food supply around the world. Food security is an existential issue for Singapore, as it is for other countries, and should never be taken for granted. Thus, we are continually reviewing our strategies to ensure and secure a supply of safe food for Singapore.The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)s Global Food Security Index (GFSI) has consistently ranked Singapore within the top five countries over the past five years.
