Monga S’pore Mulling Possible Closure In 3 Months Due To M’sia Chicken Export Ban, Price Hike

Malaysia’s ban on exporting fresh chickens from June 1 due to a domestic supply shortage has affected many chicken sellers in Singapore. Eateries like Tian Tian Chicken Rice expressed that it will stop serving its signature poached chicken, while Joo Chiat joint Dickson Nasi Lemak, which offers ayam goreng berempah, will halt operations for a month to wait out the ban.

Meanwhile Taiwanese fried chicken cutlet chain Monga, which has three franchised outlets in Singapore, is considering permanent closure here if supply woes persist. “We are still looking for a solution with our supplier, it’s a headache,” says Lem Cheong, director of operations at Baoshi F&B Management, Monga’s Singapore franchisee.

The chain uses fresh chilled Malaysian chooks for its XL-sized fried chicken cutlets, which boast a selling point of being at least 2cm-thick.
