Our Singapore Food Story

Supporting Local Produce

Why Support Local Produce

The year 2020 has been designated to focus on the Singapore Food Story. SFA aims to raise awareness on food security issues and work with the industry and public to rally support for local produce.

While SFA works with the industry to ramp up local production, demand from consumers is equally important to sustain a healthy and vibrant agri-food ecosystem. Hence, SFA is launching a Citizens’ Workgroup to co-create with citizens and find ways to increase demand for local produce.

By supporting local produce, in addition to boosting Singapore’s food security and economy, consumers can also making environmentally sustainable choices in their everyday food consumption. Local produce is safe, fresher and lasts longer. Local produce also results in less spoilage, food waste, and a lower carbon footprint, as the produce does not need to travel for long periods of time before reaching the consumer.

The SG Fresh Produce Logo

To help consumers easily identify local produce, SFA will launch a new local produce logo in mid-2020 onwards. The SG Fresh Produce (SGFP) logo can be found on packaging and selected marketing collaterals to promote local produce.
