Within nine hours of a World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) campaign launch to pressure firms here into using sustainable palm oil, consumers flooded 13 companies with e-mails. Prior to launching the #IBuyICan pressure campaign yesterday at 8am, WWF had approached 27 Singapore and 20 Malaysia firms for a survey. The 47 companies contacted were picked based on market share, brand prominence, regional presence, supply chain impact and use of palm oil.
Singapore's biggest supermarket chain launched FairPrice Gold infant formula yesterday, the fourth new arrival on the market since controversy over the high prices of formula milk rose in March. It is the first house brand formula milk in Singapore. Sourced from Australia, it is available in three variants, costing between $27 and $29 for a 900g tin.
SINGAPORE - Shoppers at NTUC FairPrice supermarkets now have one more brand of formula milk to choose from, and it costs only about half the price of some premium brands. The supermarket chain on Wednesday (Sept 20) launched a new FairPrice Gold formula house brand milk for children up to the age of three. The formula milk, sourced from Australia, is available in three types: for infants up to six months of age, for those between six months and a year old, for those who are one and older.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
