You may visit the respective agency websites from 1 Apr 19 onwards.


All food-related services under AVA will be provided by Singapore Food Agency (SFA).

SFA will serve as the single point of contact for public feedback on food-related issues, and strengthen management of foodborne disease outbreaks to protect public health.

SFA will also facilitate more business-friendly regulations with oversight of all food safety policies and consolidation of food laboratory capabilities to deepen competencies in food diagnostics, and research and development in food safety.
