Oct 06, 2022

The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) is seeking feedback from the food and animal feed industry, as well as interested parties, on the proposal to allow insects for human consumption and as animal feed, subject to specific food safety requirements and conditions. This applies to both imported, as well as locally farmed and processed insects.
