Anthea Ong on Singapore Food Agency Bill

(Updated: )

NMP Anthea Ong spoke on the Singapore Food Agency Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 12), focusing on how it can support the fight against food waste. She shared figures on the amount of food being wasted at import, manufacturing and household levels, and suggested that the Government commission a continuous collection and study of such data to raise awareness of the problem. She also said authorities could legislate that all food imported or grown in Singapore has to be sold or donated, and that this should be accompanied by a law that incentivises businesses to donate food to charity.
