Serangoon Village residents are not the only people benefiting from the opening of an NTUC FairPrice outlet in their neighbourhood.
To mark the opening of its 100th branch, the supermarket chain is donating $10 million to the FairPrice Foundation, which disburses funds to the needy and advances workers' welfare. This is the largest single amount given in one year to the foundation since the latter was set up in 2008.
In the 1970s, Singapore was rocked by disruptions in the global oil supply which led to rampant inflation, and food-shortage fears caused by unscrupulous merchants hoarding essential items. The supermarket chain's first outlet was set up in 1973 in Toa Payoh to curb such profiteering.
NTUC Fairprice Co-operative Ltd was founded by the labour movement in 1973, with a social mission to moderate the cost of living in Singapore. The first NTUC Welcome supermarket at Toa Payoh was opened by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew on 22 July 1973. In 1983, NTUC Welcome merged with the Singapore Employees Co-operative to form NTUC Fairprice Co-operative Ltd.
From one supermarket, FairPrice has grown to become Singapore’s largest retailer, with a network of more than 230 outlets comprising FairPrice supermarkets, FairPrice Finest, FairPrice Xtra, FairPrice Xpress and Cheers convenience stores. FairPrice also owns a Fresh Food Distribution Centre and a centralised warehousing and distribution company.
Today, with its multiple retail formats serving the varied needs and interests of people from all walks of life, the social mission of NTUC FairPrice has evolved to make the dream of living well accessible to everyone by moderating the costs of the good life.
