The consortium of Singapore companies - Ascendas-Singbridge and SATS - and Charoen Pokphand of Thailand will develop an integrated value chain for pork production in Jilin. Modern and environmentally sustainable pig farms, an abattoir, as well as a high-end processing plant, will be developed.
AVA’s subsidiary, Agri-Food Technologies Pte Ltd (ATP), has been providing consultancy services to the Jilin City Government to help establish the Integrated Food Safety System in the food zone. AVA officers have also been stationed in Jilin to help guide Jilin City officials as they set up this system. In addition, we have been assisting in the maintenance of Jilin’s Foot-and-Mouth Disease-Free Zone.
Eventually, the Jilin Food Zone can also produce corn, vegetables, dairy products, and fish, along with the pork that Singapore expects to import from the integrated pig farm.
