Working with over 200 producers from around the world, OpenTaste brings us the freshest of ingredients. Produce never stays in its warehouse for more than 12 hours, and there’s little to no food waste. You can get a variety of fresh fruits, meat, seafood, and snacks. There’s even an imperfect category where you can buy products that are reaching expiry at slashed prices.

Where do you turn to for the best produce in season? Make that The Green Girl. This online grocery store has been importing organic products from France since 2018, bringing in the freshest, best quality picks. As soon as the produce reaches Singapore, they’re packed in paper and delivered to you the next day. That’s a no to leftovers and plastics!
Browse its selection for products that are sourced from family farms and are all certified organic in Europe, the strongest organic label in the world, to make sure that there are no nasties in your food. Only fresh original taste and potent nutrients, as produce should be. Looking for a healthy sweet treat? We recommend trying the seasonal strawberries, figs and peaches for a delicious dessert to end any meal. Or, indulge in the crowd-favourite chocolate spread that goes well with breads and crackers.
