We can all head out to grocery shop, but let’s face it, most of us find it chore – between having to don a mask, to carrying bags of heavy groceries home. So those looking to minimise going out, to just feeling plain lazy, can turn to these online services to have their groceries delivered straight to the door instead. Just remember to buy only what you need – there's no bigger crime than unnecessary waste these days.

Shop surplus produce for discounted prices

treatsure was started to tackle the problem of food wastage with fresh solutions. At the end of the day, markets and supermarkets will have surplus produce or food nearing its expiry date (but perfectly fine to eat) which usually ends up being thrown out. Founder Preston came up with the idea to have an app to redistribute the food to others. On the e-store, find sourdough bread, barramundi fillets, surplus vegetable bundles and even ice cream popsicles for discounted prices. The selection changes frequently so be sure to keep checking.

Ugly Food

Shop 'ugly' and misshapen produce

Never judge a book by its cover – the same goes for fruit and vegetables. An initiative started by university students in a project, co-founders Yeo Pei Shan and Augustine Tan are trying to educate people to curb throwing away or rejecting perfectly edible food simply because they are "ugly". Shop generous bundles of vegetables and fruits which are good to last for two to three days from the price of $20.

For premium GG French Poulet and quality beef and pork

Local grocers Mr Farmer prides itself to be where the ‘ho liao’ is – that's 'good stuff' in colloquial terms and so far, they have been delivering their promise on quality meats that are also ethically and sustainably farmed. The bestseller at Mr Farmer is the GG French Poulet, a French breed of chicken which is the preferred choice in several top restaurants in Singapore.  Compared to the regular broiler chickens, this special breed are lower in fat, sodium content and cholesterol. Besides chicken, you can shop other premium meats like pork (the Gooralie free-range pork is a crowd favourite), beef and also fresh eggs.
