    Cannot.... cos you must apply with permit with PUB, AVA and NEA. Most likely subjected to approvals and taxes.

    Wholesale price of duck goes up
    By Lin Xinyi & Andrea Ong
    THE wholesale price of ducks has increased by 20 cents a kilogram since Monday, when Malaysian exporters reduced the supply of live ducks to Singapore by up to 30 per cent.
    Duck slaughterhouses Kendo Trading and Heng Khwee Heng Poultry have increased duck prices, which now range from $4.60 to $4.80 per kilogram.
    But consumers do not have to fork out more - for now.
    Supermarkets Cold Storage, Shop N Save, Giant and NTUC FairPrice have not increased the prices of ducks.
    Meanwhile, all of the 20 hawkers The Straits Times spoke to said that prices of duck rice remain unchanged. While they are unhappy about absorbing the additional costs, they said the situation was manageable.
    Manager of Choo Chiang Roasted Meat Noodle House (Toa Payoh outlet) Thomas Tan said: 'Only if things go really bad, such as, if duck prices increase by more than $2 per kilogram, then we might consider reducing the portions or increasing the price of our duck rice.'
    Mr Loke Koi Choon, who sells duck rice for $3 a plate at Ghim Moh market, said: 'Even during the previous bird flu scare when one duck cost as much as $25, we still didn't raise our prices. If I charge more, who will buy from me?'
    The current hike represents a $20 loss in earnings a day for Mr Loke, who sells about 20 ducks daily.
    Similarly, the six Johnson Duck Rice outlets are not charging extra yet. But franchise owner Edmund Luo hinted that prices might increase in the near future.
    President of the Poultry Merchants' Association Joseph Heng said that duck slaughterhouses have sufficient contingency stock to meet the shortage of supply from Malaysia.
    The fall in the number of ducks available for export in Malaysia is a direct result of the ban Kuala Lumpur imposed on duckling imports after a farm in Britain reported a bird flu outbreak in February.
    Mr Sam Chong from Xoon Hup Farming, a Malaysian duck farm that exports to Singapore, said that he had been directly affected by the ban as he used to import all his ducklings from Britain. The British ducklings are of higher quality and tend to be better egg-layers, he said. Now that he has switched to locally-bred parent stock, 'there are fewer ducklings'. As a result, there are less adult ducks for export.

    How do you think the Economist's get to say the Economy is growing ?

    If prices didn't go up, there would be no 'growth' and the Economist's would all be preaching doom and gloom. Heaven forbid prices drop and you have 'deflation'. That sends the Economists into a tail spin :-)
