Early Beginnings

In the early years post-independence, life was challenging for workers and their families, where they faced difficulties obtaining adequate housing, food, and other daily essentials. Thus, in order to assist citizens with improving their overall quality of life, NTUC launched the Landmark Modernization Seminar in 1969, which laid the foundation for our social enterprises.

Over the decades, our social enterprises have weathered many storms and overcome numerous obstables alongside Singaporean citizens. They have demonstrated resilience by combatting challenges such as profiteering and rising prices, while fostering new initiatives to improve the quality of life of every Singaporean.

Fast forward to today, we continue to support families and individuals by providing affordable meals and daily essentials, taking care of our young and elderly, and unlocking the full potential of workers, while bringing all these services closer to our neighbourhoods and communities.

Our collective mission to deliver value, support ageing in place, impact healthy outcomes and enable social mobility will continue. All with the purpose to empower Singaporeans to live richer and more fulfilling lives.
