Singapore has officially granted market access to bovine gelatin and collagen from Brazil following approximately one month of negotiations for the approval of the International Sanitary Certificate (ISC), a prerequisite for the trade of such products.

In 2022, Singapore imported bovine gelatin and collagen from various sources, totaling $62 million. This comprised approximately $6 million worth of bovine gelatin, primarily sourced from China, and roughly $56 million worth of collagen, mainly originating from the United States.

Bovine collagen, recognized for its diverse technological and nutritional properties, holds significant applications in the food industry, particularly in sausage production, as well as serving as a crucial raw material for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

This recent market opening in Singapore complements the preceding development, where the country opened its market to frozen shellfish, bivalve mollusks, and processed beef and pork from Brazil. These advancements are expected to foster an increase in bilateral trade. Notably, these achievements stem from the collaborative efforts of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Mapa) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE).
