This is in line with the government's efforts to ensure that food supplied in school canteens meets the required standards.
In a statement on Sunday, the ministry said the qualifying companies will supply food to a specified number of schools.
Schools shall also be distributed in groups according to geographic zones.
Interested companies may review the requirements for suppliers, dietary and financial conditions, and further details on how to apply for qualification by visiting the ministry's website for information.
