About Us

The name “Cold Storage” is an icon and its story is unique in the corporate histories of Singapore. The Company had humble beginnings - a small depot storing and selling mainly frozen meat from Australia. From that, it has grown to become the premier player in retailing in Singapore.

Established in 1903, Cold Storage was the child of the Industrial Revolution and Pax Britannica, when Singapore was the “Clapham Junction of the Eastern Seas”. Together with electricity and refrigeration, it allowed European agents of change - the colonial civil servants, merchants, miners, planters, traders - to acclimatise to living in the tropics. It can thus be said that if there were no Cold Storage the modern history of Singapore would probably be quite different.


In its early days, the Company's primary concern was to have a quick and profitable turnover of its imported meats and range of products. Later, Cold Storage shifted from counter-service to self-service, introducing the supermarket to Singapore. Then the Company pioneered the concept of multiple retailing, capitalising on bulk buying and economies of scale. Always, the strategy is to bring Cold Storage to be where consumers are.

As the island's oldest established supermarket operator with over 100 years of experience in Singapore, Cold Storage the market leader in Singapore, constantly introduced new store concepts that set clear industry standards. It was the first supermarket in Singapore to receive the CASE TRUST mark introduced by CASE in 1998 to distinguish companies that receive a high degree of consumer confidence

Cold Storage is the first supermarket in Singapore to receive MUIS certification for a designated Halal certified service corner in its supermarket operation in Causeway Point. In 1998, for the first time in Singapore’s history, a supermarket retailer was able to provide Muslims the assurance of Halal purchases over its Halal corner.

In recognising the importance of freshness guaranteed, Cold Storage started the Fresh Food Distribution Centre in Singapore back in 1999, a composite multi-temperature warehousing for fresh and frozen food distribution. Cold Storage was the first supermarket retailer in Singapore to put a fully integrated system in place to ensure cold chain distribution system from supply chain to store level to ensure the safe handling of perishable items - from paddock to palate - every step of the way.
