What you will see

Dodo Seafood Treats opens its doors to the public for the very first time. See their cutting edge technology in motion – it showcases Singapore’s one and only fully automated crabsticks line and is the only fishball-making company that uses liquid nitrogen in its processes – as we debunk myths surrounding factory work, which some call dark, dirty and demeaning.

Who you will meet

Meet Neow Bee Kuan, a 25-year veteran in Dodo’s crabsticks production line. As one of the company’s most senior workers, it has been her job to know just a bit of everything. As one of many Singaporeans who lost their jobs in the electronics industry in 1990s, Neow began her journey at Dodo’s former factory down the road and continues to hold many fond memories there. While work can be tiring, she shares her mantra of taking things one step at a time. She has witnessed Dodo’s modernisation process and appreciates how it has made her team’s lives so much better.
