Fresh produce supplier Malaysian Agrifood Corporation Berhad (MAFC) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Singapore Food Industries Limited (SFI) to exclusively distribute a range of Malaysian fruits and vegetables in Singapore, reports Flexnews.

Under the agreement, SFI – which claims to run the largest fleet of temperature controlled vehicles and manage one of the largest operating cold-room warehouse facilities in Singapore - will ensure produce quality is maintained throughout the logistical supply chain.

“The collaboration will promote the highest degree of freshness via an unbroken cold chain, while the traceability of the vegetables and fruits throughout the supply chain ensures food safety,” SFI said.

MAFC, which focuses on the production, supply and delivery of top quality Malaysian fresh fruits and vegetables, said it is committed to using cutting-edge technologies as enablers throughout its supply chain management.

MAFC CEO Azizi Meor Ngah said: “MAFC believes in fostering strategic collaborations with leading food companies, to take advantage of the transfer of knowledge between corporations, as MAFC is pursuing the objective of becoming an efficient food supply chain manager in the region.”

MAFC is a government linked corporation established in 2006 with the specific aim of restructuring the Malaysia’s agrifood production and distribution system through an integrated value adding management that gives priority to global standards of food safety, quality and sustainability.

Singapore Food Industries Limited is the only fully integrated food logistics and catering supplier in Singapore. Headquartered in Singapore, SFI’s three core businesses are Food Distribution, Food Preparation, Manufacturing and Processing, and Abattoir and Hog Auction. In 2007, SFI achieved profit before tax of S$48.6m on turnover of s$714.9m.
