Mr Desmond Choo: To ask the Minister
for the Environment and Water Resources (a) whether the Ministry regulates food
delivery companies; and (b) how does the Ministry work with food delivery
companies to ensure that food is delivered in accordance with food safety
Reply by Mr Masagos Zulkifli:
delivery companies are responsible for ensuring that the food they deliver is
transported in a manner that does not compromise food safety. This includes maintaining
the cleanliness of the vehicle, as well as the receptacle and equipment used
for the transportation of food, and storing food at the correct temperature.
Failure to do so would constitute an offence under the Sale of Food Act and the
Environmental Public Health Act.
2 To ensure food safety, the Singapore
Food Agency (SFA) has been engaging food delivery companies on the need to
adopt good practices in food hygiene and safety. SFA will continue to monitor
the industry closely and will tighten requirements to maintain food safety
standards if this becomes necessary.
