Food distribution networks are becoming increasingly complex. The globalisation of the food industry means that food products and ingredients can be sourced from many different parts of the world. Singapore imports 90% of its food, so it is highly reliant on stable and safe supply of food products from regional and global producers. Even within Singapore, the wide range of importers, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers means that local food distribution takes place in a very complex network. In this pilot study, we are conducting surveys in a small number of hawker centres to learn more about the food supply network to hawker centres, and the type of relationships between hawker centres and suppliers. Understanding the food distribution network will help us to identify whether there might be any potential risks to the food supply chain, and can also help to trace back contaminated food products in the event of a food safety incident.
