Milk companies marketing in hospital clinic.

Housewife Kay Park, 41, wanted to see a pediatrician in Spore, but on three occasions, she ended up meeting a formula milk company’s marketer in the hospital clinic first. The representative from Dumex, she said, was “persistent”. While mothers interviewed by The Straits Times gave mixed views on whether they agreed with the companies’ marketing strategies, most of them said the marketing costs should not be passed to consumers. Those interviewed were shocked and disappointed to learn that the rise in marketing expenses was a key factor for the hike in formula milk retail prices. A report released by the Competition Commission of Singapore found that between 2010 and 2014, the amount that all major manufacturers spent on marketing increased 42.4 per cent. The competition watchdog found that heavy investment in marketing and research likely led to the increase in markup of wholesale prices, and this in turn, was the main factor for increases in retail prices – which have, on average, more than doubled over the past nine years.
