foodpanda has collaborated with restaurant partners to extend their Menu RAHMAH items to be delivered to customers, making it the only food delivery platform to provide such a service in Malaysia. In support of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living’s (KPDN) initiative to alleviate the economic and cost of living pressures for Malaysians, foodpanda is doing its part to ensure that customers can order Menu RAHMAH lunch or dinner sets from the app and website at the same affordable price of RM5 or less.
At the launch of the Payung RAHMAH Initiative with foodpanda at its corporate headquarters in Bangsar South, KPDN Minister YB Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub applauded foodpanda’s commitment to widening the reach of Menu RAHMAH to even more Malaysians.
“Our efforts in making Menu RAHMAH more accessible to all Malaysians from every creed and income level would not have been possible without the voluntary participation of restaurant operators in the private sector. It is heartening to see that even food delivery platforms such as foodpanda are doing their part to ensure that more Malaysians have access to affordable food,” he said at the event.
As one of the leading food delivery platforms with millions of customers, foodpanda Malaysia is committed to ensuring that its customers can order the various Menu RAHMAH offerings wherever they are with just a few taps on the foodpanda app, said Chief Executive Officer Sayantan Das.
“We are honored to have the trust and confidence of some of our vendors in extending the reach of their Menu RAHMAH items, and at the same time, play our part to mitigate the burdens of the everyday Malaysians,” he said.
Participating in this initiative together with foodpanda are OldTown White Coffee, Texas Chicken, Lim Fried Chicken, Daporlah and 16 other restaurant brands. In addition to delivering Menu RAHMAH items, pandamart – foodpanda’s grocery store designed to deliver customer’s conveniences straight to their doorstep – is offering the Pakej RAHMAH, grocery bundles at very pocket-friendly prices with extra savings for a limited time only.
pandamart’s Pakej RAHMAH will offer two grocery bundles at RM50 and RM30, and a Menu RAHMAH item, promising savings of up to 25% for shoppers looking to get the best deal out of shopping for their everyday essentials. foodpanda unveiled its Pakej RAHMAH offerings just before the Hari Raya Aidilfitri festive period to assist Malaysians in their preparations for the celebrations.
“We also believe that this initiative will benefit our wide network of delivery partners as we anticipate an increase in the number of orders which will result in higher earnings for them. Our riders can rest assured that the fee structure remains the same whether they are sending Menu RAHMAH items or otherwise, and that they will not end up having their per-trip earnings reduced for this endeavor. That’s our commitment to them,” Sayantan added.
At the same time, foodpanda Malaysia contributed 300 packs of Bakul RAHMAH packages worth RM15,000. These packages will be handed over to the RAHMAH Malaysia Foundation, a strategic partner to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living, and will be distributed to the less fortunate.
