WITH INCREASING AWARENESS around environmental issues, there has been growing consumer demand for environmentally friendly products. And as a responsible retailer that seeks to make the lives of Singaporeans better, NTUC FairPrice has increased its range of sustainable offerings and now carries a comprehensive selection of earth-friendly oils and other items.
FairPrice is committed to promoting and adopting sustainable practices. As part of its sustainability efforts, FairPrice housebrand cooking oils that contain palm oil are sourced from Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Certified sources. RSPO is a global multistakeholder initiative that aims to promote the production and use of sustainable palm oil. FairPrice attained RSPO membership in 2018 and was the first locally owned supermarket retailer in Southeast Asia to do so.
FairPrice has been working with, and continues to work with, its suppliers to ensure they offer premium products that are ‘Healthier Choice Symbol’ certified. FairPrice offers a variety of highquality cooking oils, including Healthier Choice options such as Premium Canola with Sunflower Oil, Peanut Oil, and premium variants of olive oil, including extra light, extra virgin and organic extra virgin varieties. Furthermore, all FairPrice housebrand oils are trans-fat free and subject to FairPrice’s extensive food safety and quality assurance programme.
Through constantly reviewing and enhancing its housebrand range with healthier options, FairPrice strives to promote healthy eating.
