Smoked meat and wines from Australia
For wines, age is an asset – a rarity in the perishables community. But for vineyards and farms in Australia, a new direct route to Singapore by way of Canberra has shaved four days off the route that had been used most often, from Sydney to Singapore. The first shipment of local perishable produce – consisting of fresh bacon, smoked salmon and several types of wines – flew to Singapore in August via Singapore Airlines. The produce, travelling in refrigerated containers, was sent to international hotels, supermarkets and restaurants in Singapore.
