FoodXervices Inc opens online wholesale grocery store to consumers to address food concerns
Singapore – April XX, 2020 – In light of the novel coronavirus pandemic, many consumers in Singapore have turned to purchasing daily household necessities online. This has resulted in limited delivery time slots and products running out online, making it difficult for them to procure their items. Having served the food and beverage (F&B) industry for more than 80 years, leading foodservice distributor FoodXervices Inc Pte Ltd today opens its online wholesale grocery store (www.foodXervices.com) to consumers in this time of need.
Consumers can buy food products, including bulk items, at wholesale prices from the comfort of their home. Delivery is free with orders of $60 and above. Alternatively, they can drive through to pick up their orders from the warehouse at 218 Pandan Loop.
The FoodXervices Inc warehouse stocks more than 4,000 types of products, ranging from staples such as rice, pasta and noodle to kitchen essentials like salt, sugar, seasonings, and sauces. Also available are the likes of 3M ScotchBrite and Cif, paper products from Kleenex and Scott, and hand sanitisers from Ecolab.
“FoodXervices Inc hopes to play a part in ensuring that everyone is able to gain access to food and daily essentials, and ease some panic and inconvenience during this period,” said Nichol Ng, Managing Director, FoodXervices Inc. “We want to make it convenient for everyone. Consumers can order and pay online using their credit cards and just wait for their delivery or pick the products up from our warehouse.”
Giving back to society
Big-hearted consumers who wish to donate food products can also make purchases on the site for charities.
Those who would like to donate to The Food Bank Singapore (FBSG) can do so by putting FBSG as the delivery address (218 Pandan Loop, Singapore 128408) when making the order. FBSG regularly updates its social media platform on products they need so consumers can buy and donate the needed products.
“We will remain open during the circuit breaker period as we are an essential service,” said Ng.
