About

Singapore Fruits and Vegetables Importers and Exporters Association (SFVA) was established in 1948 by a group of pioneer fruits and vegetables importers in Singapore. Initially, the association had only seventeen members and the association’s office was in one of Singapore early wholesale markets at Carpenter Street. With the move of many of our fruits, vegetables, preserved and dried foodstuff importers and distributors to the newly constructed Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre (located) in 1983, SFVA also relocated its association office to the new Centre off West Coast highway.

SFVA’s main mission is to promote and expand the development of fruits and vegetables trade in Singapore. The association aims to promote member’s interests and helps to foster a strong network amongst members and forge a closer link relevant partners and stakeholders (such as government agencies and international trade organizations).

Since its inception, the organizations had organized many activities and initiated projects and initiatives for its members. To help members keep abreast of latest trends and developments, the association had led two successful trade mission trips to Australia and Cameron Highlands. The association is ever ready to work with its members to establish links with overseas exporters and importers. The association regularly welcomes overseas trade delegations and arranged meeting and business matching sessions, allowing members and potential business partners opportunities to exchange information and most important of all, promote bilateral trade.

SFVA has been growing steadily through the years, it has counted over 50 members representing all major fruits and vegetables importers and exporters in Singapore. The association strives to continually expand its reach, to actively identify new overseas trade and opportunities for its members as well as exploring ways to upgrade the industry.

新加坡果菜出入口商公会是由一组行业前辈在1948年创立。公会共有17家创会会员,会所设立于早期在位于加宾打街的批发市场。在1983年,随着大多数果菜出入口商迁移到新落成的巴西班让批发中心,公会会所也随着迁到位于西海岸大道的批发中心。

公会的宗旨是协助会员在果菜方面的发展,维护及提升会员的利益,促进会员之间的联系与同业之间的感情。同时,公会也扮演着会员与相关政府部门及国际商业机构间沟通的桥梁,维护双方的友好关系。

自公会创办以来,持续的通过组织各种活动来协助会员提升业务及接触最新的行业信息。公会也继续协助会员与国外同行及供应商联系,带领同行到国外进行商务考察,安排会员与来访的海外代表团交流。这些活动协助会员们对农业前景与贸易状况的深一层的认识,也让它们有机会结识更多的外地生意伙伴,从而促进双边贸易。
公会这些年来茁壮成长,目前已经有大约50家会员,代表着新加坡主要的水果与蔬菜进出口商。公会将继续努力扩大平台,积极主动接触更多的海外商机。同时,公会也希望更积极的扮演提升会员利益与素质的角色。
