NEA proves old wives tale on food wastage has failed, Fairprice to the rescue


We’ve heard it before: “You don’t finish your rice, your wife will have pimple all over her face!”

Gen Y however, doesn’t give a rat’s ass.

The National Environment Agency reveals Singaporeans wasted 796,000 tonnes of food last year, a 13.2% increase from the year before.

To address this high level of food waste, NTUC FairPrice has launched a new framework in commemoration of World Food Day today.

NTUC FairPrice explained that they plan to reduce food waste be engaging with customers to teach them about food waste and re-shape mindsets about fruits and vegetables.

In particular, they said that ‘imperfect-looking’ fruits and vegetables are still perfectly safe to eat.

NTUC FairPrice CEO Seah Kian Peng explained that Singapore needs more initiatives to promote effective and sustainable practices to reduce food waste.

NTUC FairPrice will also be working with charity organisation Food from the Heart to donate unsold but wholesome food to the community.

They next survey should be done by the Registry of Marriages on the study of increasing pimple problems amongst married women.
