AVA awards 3 land parcels for general agriculture at Sungei Tengah
SINGAPORE – Three land parcels that employed a new tendering process have been awarded for general agriculture in Sungei Tengah.
The tender method considered both the concept proposed for the site and the bid price.
Applicants were first assessed on their production capability, production track record, relevant qualifications and innovation and sustainability. Those who passed were then evaluated on price, the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said on Monday (Feb 18).
Two other land parcels for food farming offered in the same tender window were not awarded as no proposals met both the concept and price requirements. These sites will be re-tendered in the second quarter of this year.
“There has been strong interest from local companies that propose productive, innovative and sustainable proposals,” said Mr Melvin Chow, AVA’s group director for Food Supply Resilience.
