We note recent media reports regarding alleged export of products to North Korea by POKKA PTE. LTD. These reports contain many false and unsubstantiated claims.
I would like to reassure you that POKKA is committed to ensuring that it complies with all national laws and UN sanctions, including ensuring that it has no dealings with North Korea.
We enforce a firm policy not to trade with distributors that export to North Korea directly or indirectly and have robust internal policies in place that would prevent the execution of a trade with a distributor in North Korea.
POKKA requires a written declaration from all local exporters and local wholesalers that the ultimate destination for our products is not North Korea. Furthermore, we are not aware of any distributor that exports POKKA products to North Korea and would immediately suspend business with customers, in and outside Singapore, that are suspected of trading in North Korea.
