SINGAPORE - Local food company Ayam Brand has launched limited edition sardine can designs to commemorate Singapore's 50th birthday in 2015.

The first three designs are available from February, while the fourth will be released in March, and the final two in May.

It costs $3.95 for a 425g can and $2.40 for a 215g one. Companies can also purchase in bulk at $88.80 for a carton of 24 large cans or $108 (48 small cans).
