Singapore opens the door to imports of chicken meat and processed chicken meat products from Indonesia. As of Thursday (30/6), there are three companies that have obtained approval from Singapore's food agency called the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).

The three companies are PT Charoen Pokphand Indonesia-Food Division, PT Ciomas Adisatwa-Plant Pemalang, and PT Charoen Pokphand Indonesia Tbk (CPIN). PT Charoen Pokphand Indonesia and PT Ciomas Adisatwa obtained approval to export frozen chicken meat and cut chicken, while CPIN processed chicken meat.

Not to be outdone, the integrated poultry  company PT Widodo Makmur Unggas Tbk (WMUU) is also trying to be able to participate in this export.

WMUU Corporate Communications Manager & Corporate Secretary Pradipta Danar Jati said the company had submitted an export procession to the Ministry of Agriculture.   In addition, the company's production facilities are already equipped with various certifications which are the main requirements of export activities to Singapore.

Starting from the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC), Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), ISO, Veterinary Control Number (NKV), to Halal Certification.  WMUU's livestock facilities have also been equipped with avian influenza (AI) Disease-Free Compartments.

"Currently, the company is waiting for the G2G process between the Indonesian government and the Singapore government in finalizing the export-import cooperation process between the two countries, as well as further direction from relevant regulatory agencies," said Pradipta when contacted by Kontan.co.id, Sunday (3/7).

Therefore, WMUU has not been able to confirm when the export implementation time will begin. What is clear is that WMUU plans to send products in the form of chicken carcasses and derivatives, such as farewell chickens.

For information, throughout 2021, WMUU pocketed revenues of IDR 3.09 trillion.  Sales of chicken carcasses contribute up to 95.68% of the total income.   While the rest comes from the sale of commercial broiler chickens, feed, eggs, and day-old chickens.
