Yes, FairPrice is giving away free meat but only if you buy more meat

If you happen to see packaged minced pork meat marked “Free of Charge” at NTUC FairPrice, the label’s only telling half the story. 

The country’s largest supermarket chain is indeed giving away free meat, but only to meat-buying customers. That’s the consensus after photos of what looked to be a fleshy free-for-all raised eyebrows online all morning, drawing the attention of free-meat skeptics. 

“Nothing is really free, not meat for sure, especially patties,” Redditor Coronavirus-TypeR wrote in reply to the concisely titled Free meat at NTUC post.

Yet a company rep confirmed there was indeed a promotion going on at its Northpoint City mall outlet in Yishun. Until the end of the month, shoppers who purchase Porkee-brand pork can take home one packet of minced pork meat … for free.

Pork out, Singapore!
