Local Grocer Melvados Brings Fuss-Free Gourmet Food To The Masses


Melvados established in 2004, is a Singapore brand created to meet the needs of food-loving Singapore residents who are too busy to whip up a gourmet meal for themselves. Melvados aims to bring convenience directly to everyday consumers, with an ethos that is simple –- just thaw, heat and eat.

They are a one-stop halal-certified grocery shop and all the products are made in Singapore with high quality ingredients but at a wholesale price. Melvados hopes that by making gourmet food more accessible and convenient, it leaves more time for people to do what they love without having to worry about a sink full of dirty dishes.

New Flavour Launch For Hari Raya Celebrations

In celebration of the upcoming Hari Raya Puasa, Melvados has specially launched a new local flavour, Pisang Goreng Brittle, a unique reinvention of the well-loved local street snack. Made with fresh bananas, banana chips, and topped with a generous amount of banana cornflakes, the new Pisang Goreng Brittle promises a sweet, nostalgic taste of our favourite pisang goreng with a crunch in every bite. Available at only $3.50 per pack, it will be a conversation-starter at every party and gathering. 

The new crowd favourite was sold out in stores four days after its initial launch, accompanying its best-selling Ondeh Ondeh Brittle (S$3.50), inspired by the local traditional kueh, and made with a fragrant pandan coconut base and crunchy gula melaka coconut sprinkles. 

Gourmet Food Made Simple

In addition, the pandemic saw a change in behaviour of families to adapt to more alternatives for dining out, using delivery apps and experimenting with more home-cooked meals. Meal kits are more readily available and have become a main-stay in households as an alternative dining option, even as the economy opens up and people are faced with crowded and overbooked restaurants.
