This Singapore Standard (SS) is developed to meet the increasing demand from consumers for authentic organic primary produce. It was tailored to our local conditions and has encompassed the principles of organic agriculture (i.e. health, ecology, fairness, and care) for traditional organic farming, peri-urban and urban organic farming, breaking bulk and repacking of organic produce.


With organic produce making inroads into the mass market, this standard is developed with the intention to benefit industry practitioners in the organic primary produce sector, and in the process, ensure its widespread applicability by the industry thereby benefiting consumers in the long run.

This standard provides the requirements for primary produce such as grains, mushrooms, fresh vegetables, fresh herbs and fresh fruits and covering processes such as production, post-harvest practices, import, packing & re-packing, storage, transport and labelling of organic primary produce.

This launch will give an overview of SS 632: 2017 on its organic requirements, a case study presentation, and outlook on organic farming. There will be a workshop after lunch. Participants will learn the various clauses in this SS. This workshop will end with a farm tour.

Time: 10am to 12.00pm (launch)
1.30pm to 4.30pm (workshop)
Registration starts at 9.30am
