Resources for the F&B industry during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)

We’re nearing the end of the second week of Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) and many F&B establishments are experiencing a slowdown amid the heightened safety restrictions. Until June 13, dining in is prohibited and while restaurants are better equipped with providing deliveries, takeaways, this mini lockdown is still taking a toll on their operation and profits. Even with pivoting to a delivery or takeaway model, many establishments are expecting a steep decline in their sales.

Here are some of the initiatives headed by organisations to help F&B operators pull through this period.

Food delivery support

From now until Jun 15, Enterprise Singapore will fund 5 percentage points of the commission cost charged by the three food delivery platforms - Deliveroo, foodpanda and GrabFood.

In the same period, the agency will fund 20 per cent of the delivery costs for food delivery orders made through third-party logistic partners, such as Lalamove, Zeek Logistics and Pickupp.

Staff salary support

The Government has also increased support for F&B businesses under the Jobs Support Scheme (JSS) to 50 per cent from the 10 per cent support of wages paid up to June 2021.

Under the JSS, co-payment by the government will apply to the first S$4,600 of gross monthly wages paid to local employees during the period for which dining-in is prohibited.
