Abstract: An assessment was made to determine the volume of food products left and the length of time where different food categories, such as rice and alternatives, meat and alternatives, vegetables, fruits, nuts and oils and fats, will last in the event of an emergency which isolates Singapore and major modes of transportation are disrupted. The nutritional values of these food categories were also evaluated. Based on the current analysis, existing stockpiles of processed food products will last 13.4 to 18.7 months for rice or 20.4 to 28.5 months for rice and alternatives; 7.58 to 11.38 months for meat and alternatives with approximately 53% derived from meat and meat products, 19% from fish and seafood and 28% from eggs or dairy produce; 2.5 months for vegetables; 3.11 months for fruits and 78.3 to 92.5 months for oils and fats. There will be a shortage in supply of 0.43 months for nuts.
