The Singapore Fruits and Vegetables Importers & Exporters Association was established back in the year 1948, we are looking forward to celebrate our 70th anniversary next year (2018). Through the years, we have been playing an important role towards promoting the development of Singapore’s fruits and vegetables trade and ensuring food safety and diversity for our fellow Singaporean; fostering closer relationships among member companies, government agencies and business associates, both locally and internationally.

With the evolving society and increasing consumers’ sophistication, it is a challenge for our Association and members to source for a wider spectrum of fresh produces that are of better quality and value, in larger quantities, from a diversify sources of supply to meet and satisfy their aspiration.

We are also working closely with AVA to form the Vegetables and Fruits cluster, providing a platform for AVA to engage the industry regularly, to identify and address issues and challenges in food supply; develop diversification strategies and explore new food sources and investments opportunities.

Our Association is proud to present to you the latest edition of the Members’ Directory. The Directory will be distributed to all relevant organizations including government agencies, embassies, trade commissions as well as visiting trade delegations from foreign countries.

Last but not least, let me represent the association to express our gratitude to our Advisor, Member of Parliament, West Coast GRC and Minister for Trade & Industry (Industry) S Iswaran and all our partnering government agencies and institutions for their kind supports all these years. We would also like to thank all the advertisers for their invaluable contribution and support.
