Singapore Airlines' shark fin stand

It has been widely spread in Singapore that Singapore International Airlines had stopped serving shark's fin on their flights since 2001 in view of conservation.

Isn't it a bit strange then that FairTrade SG found this on their website.


In one of the most competitive shark’s fin markets in the world, Ping’s restaurant’s reputation for exceptional shark’s fin dishes places it as one of the best dining experiences in Bangkok.

Singaporean owner/chef Mr. Saetia Hung Ping has had more than 45 years of experience in the industry. Personally handpicking only the finest shark’s fins, the chef conjures a wide variety of seafood and Teochew cuisine.
As long as businesses have money to make they cannot be depended upon to take a stand on conservation. We need to stop buying this ridiculous dish! The lack of demand is the only thing that will make a real difference.
