PORK supplies to wet markets, food stalls and some supermarkets could be disrupted over the next two days, following the temporary closure of Singapore's sole abattoir yesterday.

The market will lose an estimated 160kg of fresh pork, affecting primarily pork supplies at wet markets, suppliers said.

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said in a statement yesterday that a gas leak in a chiller room at its Buroh Lane abattoir in Jurong led to slaughter operations being halted.
