Melvin Yong on Singapore Food Agency Bill(Updated: )
MP Melvin Yong spoke on the Singapore Food Agency Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 12). He called for more to be done to strengthen Singapore's food safety regime. For instance, he pointed out that food hygiene certificate holders only need to attend their first refresher training after five years, then subsequently every 10 years. Mr Yong said the gap is far too long and should be shortened to send a strong message on the importance of maintaining high standards of food hygiene.
