FairPrice Group, the cooperative that runs Singapore’s largest supermarket retail chain and cooked food centres, has appointed global marketing agency, LEWIS, as its agency partner for public relations following a competitive pitch.
FairPrice Group was established in 2019, bringing together four social enterprises – NTUC FairPrice, NTUC Foodfare, Kopitiam, and NTUC Link. While the Group entity was recently established, its social enterprises – such as NTUC FairPrice which was first established in 1973 – have served Singapore for decades. Together, the Group seeks to nourish future generations and make life better for everyone.
LEWIS will provide brand, communications and issues consultancy, as well as media relations, content creation and issues monitoring. The agency will work alongside the Group’s corporate communications team to bring the co-operative’s vision to life and strengthen the brand’s relationship with the community as consumer needs evolve.
Jonas Kor, Director of Corporate Communications, FairPrice Group said, “The formation of the Group has provided an opportunity to develop a holistic approach to cater to the evolving food needs of consumers. During the pitch process, the LEWIS team demonstrated deep understanding of our brand and the areas where we are keen to strengthen. Since working together in April, the agency has developed and implemented creative communication and media strategies that are designed to serve the Group’s unique services and proposition.”
Pamela Tor Das, Managing Director, LEWIS Singapore said, “The demand for brands today goes beyond delivering great services or products. We’re living in a time where brands increasingly need to act with purpose and meaning – traits that FairPrice Group embodies. It’s a brand that touches many of our lives with a clear vision that is fuelling its growth. We’re excited to have the opportunity to share its story with the people of Singapore and look forward to working closely with the FairPrice Group team.”
