On October 28, 2020, the Food Authority of Singapore announced that Cent to Dollar Pte Ltd was fined US$2,000 for illegally operating a cold storage store for meat products.
In March 2020, officials from the Singapore Food Authority (SFA) discovered that Cent to Dollar Pte Ltd stored meat products in multiple freezers in unlicensed cold rooms. SFA seized about 147 kilograms of various sliced beef pieces.
The Food Authority of Singapore stated that illegal storage of meat in unlicensed places will bring food safety risks. All meat storage facilities must be licensed and meet the requirements of the Food Authority and food safety standards.
Once convicted, offenders who illegally store meat products can be fined up to 10,000 U.S. dollars or imprisoned for up to one year.
