US Dairy Industry signs MoU with Singapore


The US Dairy Export Council (USDEC) and the Food Innovation and Resource Centre (FIRC) at Singapore Polytechnic have signed a partnership agreement that furthers US dairy’s commitment to food innovation to meet the needs of Southeast Asian customers and consumers.


The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) lays out a framework under which USDEC and US dairy suppliers will work together with FIRC to deepen dairy knowledge, develop innovative food products for the Southeast Asian market, and provide consumers in the region with more options suited to their specific tastes.


FIRC, a joint venture between Singapore Polytechnic and Enterprise Singapore, a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, was formed in 2007 to provide food companies with technical expertise in new product and process development. It is part of the government’s vision to position Singapore as a leading food and nutrition hub in Asia.


Martin Teo, technical director, food applications, with USDEC’s Singapore office will serve as the key contact between US dairy suppliers and FIRC.
