Product of Origin.
You probably seen product label with highlight on "product of Singapore" and naturally people think that it is make in Singapore. actually it really means that the a certain portion of the product is manufactured in Singapore. The product itself could be very well imported from other countries. For example, it is very rare to find 100% pure raw honey in Singapore as there is not commercial beekeeping. I do managed a few Bee gardens that house about 50 colonies in total, the amount of honey that this bees can produce are very limited. just can not commercialise the honey. I can only share this honey honey produced by our local honeybees to a very small number of people.
Why product of Singapore
Many manufacturers and companies prefer to let people know that their product is made in Singapore. This is because Singapore is a well known brand in the world due to the high quality standard and strict process control that has put in place. It is not easy to develop a mature and fool proof system that help to ensure the product quality is properly control. However, due to the lack of natural resources, it is very difficult to have a product that is 100% originated in Singapore. Hence the guideline on labelling the product by the government allow the use of"Product of Singapore" if a percentage of the work in getting product ready are carry out within Singapore. in most of the case is the investment in automation for packaging process. This has greatly benefited the big companies or people who are financially strong.
For local producers, or small enterprise, it is really difficult to get there.
Many local Singaporean are trying to create our local brand and it is very important to establish this sense of belonging. Making changes and doing meaningful job that will benefit Singapore.
We have to be better educated about our current system and making changes so that it will really benefit the local Singaporean especially those are struggling at the lower end of the ladder.
Support real local, be educated!
