S'pore sees increase in demand for exotic game meat

Frozen exotic game meat

SINGAPORE: The demand for exotic game meat has doubled over two years.

Owners of game meat stores said the increase is due to the presence of more Chinese nationals in Singapore who enjoy eating the exotic meat more than the locals.

One local farmer who breeds his own game meat said 6 out of 10 customers are from China.

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority allows the import of exotic game meat like rabbit, pigeon, quail, squab and wild guinea fowl.

But game meat is not common in Singapore.

The Restaurant Association of Singapore said less than 10 per cent of restaurants under the organisation sell game meat.
