Singapore’s Minister of Trade and Industry Chan Singh confirmed today that his country has started importing frozen shrimp from Saudi Arabia, in a step that would lay the foundations for more food imports and exports between the two countries.
The Singaporean Channel CNA quoted the minister as saying that adding Saudi Arabia to the list of food sources in Singapore would give us many options for flexibility when emergencies occur in different parts of the supply chain. Describing supply management as “a kind of art and science”.
During his visit to a retailer in Singapore, Chan Singh said: After we learned that we can import shrimp from Saudi Arabia, we will endeavor to do it in a very competitive manner.
The channel added that the Saudi brand “Red Sea Shrimp” is currently only available in “Firebrits” stores, however its distributor “The Seafood Company” hopes to eventually expand sales to other chains as well.
The supplying company indicated that the shrimp has better taste and texture because it is grown on a farm in the Red Sea, which is characterized by a higher degree of salinity compared to sea water from other parts of the world.
“We have brought in 60 tons of shrimp since launching the brand in Singapore three months ago,” said Kenneth Chea, managing director of the company, who described the import as “successful.” We are on our way to reach shipments of up to 120 tons by the end of the year.
