foodpanda brings ramadan favourites right to the doorsteps of Penangites

Penang, 17 April 2020 - foodpanda, the leading online delivery service, has partnered with the Penang Halal International to launch a Ramadhan E-Bazaar in the state. Penang Halal International is a subsidiary of state-owned entity, Penang Development Corporation. As the country enters the 3rd phase of the Movement Control Order and social distancing is highly encouraged, foodpanda wants to ensure Penangites can still order in their Ramadhan favourites while helping Halal compliant businesses to reach their customers.

The culture of the Ramadan Bazaars has always been something locals look forward to as the Holy Month draws near. Now more than ever, foodpanda wants to encourage Penangites to stay home and stay safe while still being able to enjoy their much loved Buka Puasa delicacies.

"Penang State under the initiative of Penang Halal International continues to support the business community by collaborative effort and teaming up with industry expert, foodpanda to support the business community depending on Ramadan with innovative solutions. Penang consumers will be served with special delivery platform despite challenges and the ongoing Movement Control Order," YAB Chow Kon Yeow, Chief Minister of Penang

"In line with our 'Next Normal Penang Strategy', I also hope that through the foodpanda platform, we will be able to encourage more of the Halal business community to use this window of opportunity to fully embrace the future of business in a technology-driven world," he added

"Penang Halal International is teaming up with foodpanda as an enabler for food business operators during Ramadan. By partnering with an established and experienced food delivery company such as foodpanda, it will further promote Penang Halal International's mission in "Halal & Toyyiban (Hygiene) Lifestyle" among the business community. The collaboration aims at enabling businesses to continue serving the consumers via digital solution," said Y.B. Dato' Haji Abdul Halim Bin Haji Hussain, Penang State Exco for Domestic and International Trade and; the Chairman of the Penang Halal International.

"We are grateful to be able to work with the Penang Halal International to extend a hand and lighten the burden of Halal compliant businesses through this partnership. This is a challenging time for the nation, but by working together, I believe we can come out of this stronger than before," said Sayantan Das, Managing Director, foodpanda Malaysia.
