Greenyard Food Industries Pte Ltd. was fined $7,500 by the Court today for illegally importing fresh and processed produce for sale. Its Director, Fang Kai Bung, was also fined $5,500 for failing to prevent the offence from being committed.
On 19 January 2022, a truck carrying food produce consigned to Greenyard Food Industries Pte Ltd was stopped and referred for checks during a joint operation conducted by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) at Woodlands Checkpoint. The truck was then referred to SFA for a follow-up inspection.
SFA’s investigation found that the company illegally imported approximately 324kg of undeclared and under-declared fresh fruits and vegetables, and about 11kg of undeclared processed food from Malaysia. All the illegal consignments were seized.
