NTUC FAIRPRICE SEGREGATE THEIR MARKET INTO ATAS AND BUDGET CONSCIOUS

NTUC Fairprice have announced that they will open another six more supermarkets for budget conscious shoppers this year, due the demand for more of such budget groceries. These stores feature a smaller but more affordable range of products, including housebrand products, Every Day Low Price and Yellow Dot items, which comprise about half the product mix in the stores.

Makes you wonder why they can't just carry the cheaper and budget groceries product in all of their NTUC stores. Must be very discriminatory to budget conscious Singaporeans, is it? What is wrong trying to save a few dollars here and there, now that prices everywhere are just getting too high?

FINALLY, GOOD NEWS FROM AVA! WE DID NOT IMPORT ROTTEN MEAT FROM BRAZIL!

I guess we can all breathe a sigh of relief that AVA has announced that Singapore is not affected by the Brazilian rotten meat saga. None of the 21 meat-processing establishments placed by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply under a special surveillance regime are approved to export to Singapore, the authority said in a statement.

This is a huge relief. When NTUC announced earlier today that they are checking with the meat supplier, Singaporeans collectively held their breath. What if we really had been eating rotten meat? Thankfully, it has been confirmed Singapore was not affected. Finally AVA brought some good news to Singaporeans, after all their culling nonsense.

NTUC CONFIRMS IT CARRIES POULTRY PRODUCT FROM BRAZIL

NTUC Fairprice have confirmed that it carries poultry products from the two Brazilian suppliers caught in a rotten meat scandal, and is seeking clarification from them. So far, it is not known if Singapore is affected by the meat scandal that has rocked the world’s biggest beef and poultry-exporting nation.

The alarming thing is Brazil is listed on the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore’s (AVA) website as a major source of supply of beef, chicken, pork, fruits and sugar to Singapore.

NETIZEN FELT ILL EATING NTUC MINCED CHICKEN WITH PLASTIC RESIDUE

A reader shared that he fell ill after cooking and consuming a packet of minced chicken from NTUC which contained pieces of plastic residue on the chicken. This incident happened in November 2016. According to the reader, she had bought the chicken from a NTUC Fairprice supermarket. Although the minced chicken appeared to be normal on inspection, bits and pieces of plastic residue stuck to the chicken upon removal of the plastic layer.

FRESH MILK CAUSED FAMILY STOMACH REFLUX AND VOMITTING

This happened at NTUC FairPrice, on the afternoon of 4th Mar.

We went to FairPrice Sembawang to buy 5 bottles of Vishnu milk for our children. The expiry date is 16 Mar 2017, so they should be very fresh. However, that night, after drinking the first cup of milk, both my son and daughter vomited severely. My husband and I try the milk, it tasted bad sour and caused stomach reflux.

RIVERVALE MALL NTUC SOLD FISH WITH SUSPECTED "OILY BLACK GREASE" IN ITS BODY

I bought a grouper from Rivervale Mall NTUC fairprice and it was cleaned and prepared by the staff before bringing it home. During steaming of the fish, it looked fine but when we started eating it, we found a disgusting black substance flowing all about the fish body. Eventually we found a piece of black gooey black blob which we think is coagulated grease. This is a serious health hazard if we ate the fish without checking.

AIRPORT TROLLEY HANDLERS PAY INCREASED TO $1K! SO PROUD OF THE GENEROSITY

We seemed to be so proud of this achievement of having increased the pay of these workers from $580 to – and I think here’s the catch – “to as much as $1,000″. So, does it mean that some were still being paid somewhere between $581 to $999? And what about the other about 5,760 outsourced contract workers who were not mentioned along with the 240 trolley workers working under airport operator Changi Airport Group? Moreover, the “from $580 to as much as $1,000” – was also subject to – “depending on their work attendance and performance”

The article added that this rise of about 40 per cent of their wages is part of National Trades Union Congress (NTUC)’s efforts to improve the pay of low-wage out-sourced contract workers (Note – only 240 workers out of about 6000 out-sourced workers). We should be ashamed of the fact that after our much touted trade union movement and tripartite’s efforts all these years – our world class award-winning airport was paying such “slave wages” ($580) to as I understand it mostly elderly Singaporeans.
