Food Suppliers in Singapore...

Is it because we are a small operation or maybe because we are located in a coffeeshop where the price is too cheap?

Somehow i have this feeling that a few of the suppliers in singapore does not respect small establishments.

We do meet the minimum delivery requirement, the volume we sell is about the same or more then a bistro, we don't delay our payments.

All we ask...

- Do not deliver between 11am-2pm which almost all restaurants i work at have such a requirement because that is the busy lunch rush hour.

- Do not send us shit. We pay the price listed in the quotation, why send rotten food to us?

Food industry in Singapore have a long way to go if our supplies do not value the quality of the product they sell. Food is more then just a business, its a way of life.

Meanwhile, I love suppliers i can meet face to face and have a chat with them.

Chia Vegetable Supply @ Tekka Market is a very good stall. Victor is the man, good knowledge, good prices, great variety, fresh produce. Mesclun salad in a wet market? i guess they are the only one with things like Mesclun, Baby bell pepper, fresh rosella, jalapeno pepper, truffle oil, etc... Amazing stall.

Just see how big is their stall! Amazing!


  1. The catering business has been experiencing a boom for a long time now. Catering services should need to get the idea of modern catering needs and demand of customers. Recently finger food have become an important part of catering business.Seems to be a very promising catering services.Great catering is dependent on two factors: excellent service and unforgettably great food which I think you can provide both.. large scale catering

  2. True saying.These days packaging foods are in demand and at reasonable cost also...
