Knowing Your Food Alternatives

Another strategy in ensuring food supply resilience for Singapore is the promotion of food alternatives such as frozen meat, liquid eggs and egg powder.

Helping consumers turn to alternative forms of a food product will help Singaporeans cope better should there be any supply disruptions or price increase.​

Public Education


Singapore has limited sources for chilled meat and shell eggs. Public education on food alternatives and the freshness of local produce help buffer against potential supply disruptions.

Frozen meat

Stretch your dollar by choosing frozen meat and save at least 15 to 20%. Some frozen meat cuts can even be 50% cheaper than chilled meat.

Opting for other alternatives can lessen the potential impact of any disruptions. Liquid egg and egg powder are alternatives that provide as much nutritional value as fresh shell eggs. They are fresh shell eggs processed into different forms.
