One more thing, hormones are considered an illegal drug to apply on poultry anywhere in the world.
09) Will it be safe to thaw and refreeze the frozen products?
Not recommended to do that as bacteria do grow after thawed. I will suggest you break the portion needed and keep the unthaw portion back.
For frozen products, if you won't be able to consume it, yes, please cut the portion you will able to consume before it thaws. Do keep the remain portion in the freezer to freeze it. When you will like to consume, thaw it and cook it, however, do not refreeze it back one you thaw it as per AVA guideline.

14) Why are all your chickens frozen?
We use blast freeze technology to quickly freeze our freshly processed chicken to have it at -18 frozen conditions to prevent any further bacteria growth on our products. This way, we will be able to deliver the best quality products to our customers. Blast freezing is a process that rapidly freezes fresh poultry to -18ºC within three to four hours. Supercooled air is blasted within the freezer and circulated by high flow rate axial fans. At a working temperature of -35ºC, it causes heat exchange from the fresh poultry and rapidly absorbs the latent heat from within the meat. This takes place in a controlled environment insulated from the outside elements.
15) Why are blast frozen products better?
When meat is frozen, the water inside it crystallizes. If freezing takes place at relatively warm temperatures, the ice crystals that form will be large. Whereas in a blast freezer, the extremely cold temperature promotes rapid freezing, which creates small ice crystals that have a less damaging impact on the meat. Once the meat has been frozen in a blast freezer, it can be moved to a conventional freezer for storage.
16) Differences between Normal and premium chicken.
Black chicken, kampong chicken, fresh chicken are considered normal chicken.
Normal chicken are chicken that fed with traces of antibiotics in their feed during their rearing process. However, those are safe and not abusively been used. Once these normal chickens are ready to be sent to Singapore for processing, they will go thru a 7 days withdrawal period to pass out all their antibiotic residuals in their body to make them antibiotic residuals free. This has to verify daily by AVA custom inspection with random sampling to make sure that the antibiotic level is below the legal amount.
AVA does not allow the use of hormones in animals for export of meat to Singapore.
Sakura, Lacto, CaroGold, Cordyceps
All these 4 premium brand are fed with a mix blend of Lactobacillus as the basic start. All 4 brands don't consume a single drop of antibiotic from day one. Lacto chicken / Cordyceps chicken / Carogold chicken = Organic chicken (Fed with lactobacillus from Singapore technology); whereas, Sakura chicken = Non-organic chicken (Fed with lactobacillus from Japan technology)
What makes them so special is that on the 3rd week, not only they continue to consume lactobacillus premix in their daily feed, they are also fed with Cordycepin to become Cordyceps chicken, they fed with Lutein and Carotenoids to become CaroGold Chicken.
Is like BMW 5 Series:

After that, they will be able to pass the AVA inspection before entering to Singapore. The time it takes the body to break down the antibiotic until it is no longer functional or present is called the withdrawal time (or withdrawal period). Once the withdrawal period has passed the antibiotic has been eliminated from the animal’s system.

We not free of GMO. The corn, it is GMO corn as it is from North or South America. Our cornflakes are already GMO. Soy bean is necessary in feed as it is the main source of protein. We can make the perfect product, but cost will be higher. Soy bean is the primary source of protein in the feed. Corn protein is not high enough as we need at least 21% to have strong growth. As soya bean is high in phyoestrogens that mimic estrogen. If we do away with soya bean in our feed use non-GMO corn for our feed and plus what are doing now, farming without growth hormone and antibiotics we would have the perfect product!
