S’poreans react to BreadTalk filling bottles with Yeo’s soya bean milk & selling it at higher price

Posted on 05 August 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


An online brouhaha has exploded into a national crisis after photos circulated online showed BreadTalk selling bottles of soya bean milk drink that originally came from Yeo’s.

Singaporeans are angry as they felt BreadTalk did not value-add by simply transferring the soya bean milk drink from one container to another, but yet have been charged a higher price for something they can essentially buy for a lot cheaper if it was still in the original Yeo’s packaging.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “This is the same as taking a general from SAF, remove his uniform and put him in parliament as minister and paying him more salary.”
Bu Gong Ping, 43-year-old human resource manager


sian-half-uncle “I never thought I would see this day where I finally learnt the secret of how the rich remain rich.”
Wa Boh Lui, 63-year-old on government support


happy-bird-girl “If BreadTalk had poured the soya bean milk from the Yeo’s packet into a bottle and had actually labelled it Yeo’s, consumers would have looked at what was done and assume the people running BreadTalk are pointless idiots and not paid for it in the first place.”
Bian Qian, 16-year-old semi-pro poker player
