The Jilin Sino-Singapore Food Zone is earmarked to be a disease-free agricultural region for production of agricultural foodstuff, grown and processed under stringent health and quality standards. Jilin acts as the centre for the three north-eastern provinces of Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang, from which goods will be trans-shipped to other parts of China and overseas markets. The development of the Sino-Singapore Jilin Food Zone Logistics Park (JFLP) is a joint venture between Keppel T&T and Jilin City Government, to provide a consolidated platform for the trading and distribution of the farm produce. The JFLP aims to promote food safety and quality standards for trading and distribution processes.
Integrated Support to Entire Value Chain
The Logistics Park will provide holistic support to the value chain, by integrating logistics services with retail space and trading platform. This means farm produce can travel directly all the way from their sources to consumers via retail shops, which are located adjacent to loading/unloading areas for transport convenience. Goods are transported within buildings by centralised carts, for optimal efficiency and hygiene. Warehouses are colour coded to represent the various types of goods that are consolidated, processed, distributed, transferred, stored and sold in the logistics park, for easy identification by buyers.
