Singapore food SMEs unite to secure shelf in major Indonesia supermarkets
Gary Scattergood, Food Navigator Asia
Singapore is keen to boost its number of food exports, especially among SMEs. The city state is currently working towards implementing its Food Industry Transformation Map to help the segment achieve 4.5% annual productivity gains, while opening up 2,000 new managerial and technical jobs by 2020. More than 100 Singapore SME food firms – from manufacturers of fish balls to rice vermicelli – now have their products stocked in major Indonesia supermarkets, tapping into Indonesia’s 250 million population, with the middle class creating big opportunities for food manufacturers.
