More local food brands and businesses are developing and putting in place production methods that protect and minimise harm to the environment. Some of these businesses also help grow other enterprises, whether local or foreign, and support their employees’ well-being. They sometimes go one step further, finding employment for people who have lost their jobs.
The homegrown brands listed here push the sustainability envelope in their own ways, all for the greater good. Birds of Paradise, FreshJoy, Mekhala, Oh My Goodness!, The Ice Cream & Cookie Co., and Uncle Saba’s also bear the Made With Passion brand mark, a national initiative that showcases and celebrates Singapore lifestyle brands and recognises the hard work and passion that goes behind their pursuit of excellence.
