A few weeks shy to the BIG SG50 NATION WIDE CELEBRATION month, we are proud to announce that JFF PTE LTD has been internationally certified under ISO 22000:2005 for the processing and packaging of live frogs for wholesale distribution, retail sale and restaurants.
In the last few years, Singaporeans’ consumers have become very conscious of where their food is sourced from and how the animals are raised and processed. Food Safety became a common table topic of discussion as more and more articles of errant manufacturers from all around the world, deliberately contaminating their products to drive up their profit margins, made headlines.
This move to achieve this certification has been deliberated upon for many years due to the constant battle with land leases issues with the government. The truth is, at present, it is affirmative that we do need to move out of our current home of 22 years in 2017. However, JFF has taken a BIG leap of faith to allow this dream of being known internationally for our food safety standards to come to fruition.
As we continue to improve our food safety management system, consumers can continue to make educated informed choices on the quality of frog meat they are acquiring when they choose the JURONG FROG FARM Singapore trusted Brand name.
So this will be my last blog post here in the farm.
I have been on the farm for my internship for four months and now it’s time to share my experiences here.
The first time I heard my teacher said that I was posted to a frog farm, all my friends already starting joking that I’ll be eating frog porridge everyday!
So in my head when realized being posted to a frog farm, sweating under the hot sun and being surrounded by hundreds of frogs.
So what did i learnt from this internship?
Learning to communicate way better than I ever did. Before the internship, I was shy and only open up to friends that i know well.
But now I’m able to talk to visitors and customers confidently on the spot and assisting them!
Also I’ve learned to react to unexpected situations calmly and appropriately. I have to say I have messed up at times during the internship but fortunately Chelsea was a forgiving person.
The first few weeks of my tours were supervised by Chelsea in case I froze during the tour.
She was friendly and patient with me throughout the internship, helping me with my flaws and teaching me the correct ways to conduct a tour and my other job scopes. It includes admin work and taking care of the shop during weekends.
I was a slow learner, so it took me a longer time before Chelsea felt that I was able to manage the tour by myself.
But before the internship started I never would have thought I’ll be able to lead a guided tour around the farm by myself!
Having my internship here at the farm was definitely one of the best experiences I ever had.
I have definitely learned many new things and improved my skills that can be applied during my future working life.
