Speaking to Channel NewsAsia, AVA said that Singapore currently imports chilled and frozen pork from nine countries. Most of what is consumed here comes from Indonesia and Australia, but in future, it will be brought in from Chile and the Philippines as well.

But this will take some time because only two slaughterhouses in Chile have been approved to export frozen pork here.

AVA said that supply will depend on market forces.

Meanwhile, AVA is still processing the application from Philippine slaughterhouses.
