NTUC FairPrice and Grab in talks with more partners to provide benefits across diverse suite of products and service
SINGAPORE, 19 March 2018 – Singapore’s largest supermarket chain, NTUC FairPrice (FairPrice), and Southeast Asia’s leading on-demand transportation and fintech platform, Grab, today officially launched the SCORE Subscription Programme. The programme leverages each organisation’s strengths to offer the community better cost savings and convenience on key necessities, including groceries and transportation.
Mr Seah Kian Peng, CEO, NTUC FairPrice, said, “FairPrice and Grab have collaboratively developed the SCORE Subscription Programme, which offers a more enriching experience for our customers. For a start, the programme maximises benefits to customers and complements their groceries and transportation needs. Progressively, SCORE will be further developed as we collaborate with other industry leaders to provide a comprehensive service with different offerings to complement the customers’ lifestyle.”
Mr Anthony Tan, Group CEO and Co-Founder of Grab, added, “Grab is honoured to partner with FairPrice, Singapore’s leading supermarket chain, in launching SCORE. Both FairPrice and Grab were founded to deliver sustainable social impact, and SCORE is a perfect embodiment of the double bottom line approach that is core to both organisations, in that it is a win-win-win for FairPrice, Grab, and our customers. With SCORE, we are delighted to offer a programme that’s relevant to everyone in Singapore, and we invite like-minded brands to partner with us in delivering even greater value to all Singaporeans.”
The launch of SCORE was graced by Mr Chan Chun Sing, Secretary-General of the National Trade Union Congress, where he highlighted the role of organisations such as NTUC FairPrice and Grab in remaining relevant in today’s disruptive economy, while collaborating to cast a wider net in providing better value and making lives better for the community.
Catering to Changing Needs
The SCORE Subscription Programme was developed after a survey conducted with over 1,000 customers between the ages of 20 to 40 years old reflected potential in the market for such a service. Key results from the survey included groceries (69 per cent) and transport (54 per cent) listed as the top two services that respondents wanted to enjoy benefits on from a subscription service. Almost all survey respondents (95 per cent) also expressed openness to signing up for subscription services.
Both FairPrice and Grab currently serve an extensive pool of customers – FairPrice serves over 600,000 customers daily in Singapore and Grab has over 86 million mobile app downloads regionally.

The SCORE Subscription Programme brings together benefits exclusive to FairPrice and Grab, to offer subscribers a suite of savings and benefits including:
|1. Five per cent LinkPoints rebate for incremental spends above S$100 in a single receipt at FairPrice, FairPrice Finest, FairPrice Xtra, Unity Pharmacies and/or Warehouse Club (capped at S$5 per transaction).||1.
