Fishcopfed 1

A 20-member delegation of the National Federation of Fishers Cooperatives Ltd. (FISHCOPFED), the apex body of fishery cooperatives in India visited SNCF on 10 April 2018.

In this study trip led by FISHCOPFED’s Vice President, Mr Shri Ramdas P. Sandhe, the group of directors visited both Malaysia and Singapore to understand more about the co-operative movement in the both countries.

SNCF Senior Manager (NTUC, Service, Campus and Youth) Mr Ronald Low welcomed the delegation and gave an overview of SNCF and its focus areas in the sharing session.  There was a lively exchange led by SNCF CEO Ms Dolly Goh and FISHCOPFED’s Vice President, Mr Shri Ramdas P. Sandhe. SNCF also shared with FISHCOPFED that Singapore imports over 90% of the food consumed in the country due to little farming land and limited fishing grounds. In fact, Singapore’s local farms only produce only 8% of all the fish that we eat in Singapore.1

FISHCOPFED shared with us their mission i.e. to promote and develop the fishery cooperative movement in India. Not only do they focus on marketing and sales, they also constantly train and educate their members with the view to enhance fish production and generate employment. To better the welfare of their members, they provide insurance coverage and computers.

SNCF looks forward to meeting them again, perhaps in India next time!
