Description

Join us for our supermarket tours at Plaza Singapura on 28, 29 and 30 June 2019 from 3pm to 4pm to learn how to plan sustainable and healthy meals for your loved ones!


This guided tour aims to expose participants to key components of a plant-based diet and debunk myths behind the plant-based diet. Learn about the nutritional value behind different vegetables, fruits, grains and plant-based protein and how you can prepare food for various members in your family.

This supermarket tour is open to anyone who would like to learn to prepare nutritious food and is useful for those with family members who might have different health concerns, such as diabetes, heart disease, lactose intolerance and so on.


We will guide you through the aisles as we explore the various food groups:
  • Legumes
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Plant-based proteins (e.g. tofu, tempeh, meat alternatives)
  • Plant mylks
  • Seaweed
  • Whole Grains
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • And others

Limited spaces are available so we can ensure better interaction between our nutrition experts and participants. Due to high dropout rates for free events, the ticket is priced at a small non-refundable fee of $5 to ensure attendance. 100% of the fees go to our registered charity, Centre for a Responsible Future, to continue our work in encouraging sustainable diets for people and the environment.
