The National Design Centre (NDC) is the nexus for all things design. This is where designers and businesses congregate to exchange ideas, conduct business, use its facilities and obtain assistance from the national agency for design, the DesignSingapore Council. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, it is well placed to invite the public to learn about design through its exhibitions and programmes.

The vision of the DesignSingapore Council is for design to differentiate Singapore from global competition. As the national agency for design, the Council’s mission is to develop the design sector, and to help Singapore use design for innovation and growth, as well as to make life better. The DesignSingapore Council is part of the Ministry of Communications and Information.

It's hard to talk about the business of Salad Stop! without talking about family. Growing up, our mother used to share her stories about our deep connection with nature. She taught us about honouring and respecting every thing in the world around us.

Being aware of these connections made each meal an invitation to Come Alive! Conversations around meals meant more than just spoken words, it was a time for us to STOP and be reminded of the joys of eating and being human. We dream of a trusted place where people can experience this globally.

In a world where speed, time and money is paramount, we sometimes get carried away and forget about appreciating the things that fuels us and keeps us going – our own food. We want people to Stop! and think about their food. Understand where it came from, think about the hands, soil and time that made it possible. We want everyone to enjoy the joys of eating wide awake.

It is our passion to make sure that every ingredient that ends up in your tummy comes from the hands of farmers and suppliers who share the same respect and honour we have for responsible produce. Eating should no longer just be about being good to your body, but to everything around you.
