More food operators line up to offer Menu Rahmah

KEPALA BATAS: A total of 586 food operators nationwide have registered to offer Menu Rahmah meals at their restaurants, says Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry deputy secretary-general Datuk Roziah Abudin.

She said the Menu Rahmah initiative is seen as being able to bring about a positive impact for traders.

“We have received feedback from the participating food operators saying that the Menu Rahmah initiative has become a crowd-puller for them.

“We hope that more food operators will take part in the initiative on a voluntary basis,” she told reporters after the launch of Menu Rahmah at Bafana Roasters Sdn Bhd in Bertam yesterday.

Roziah added that Menu Rahmah meals were not only for the B40 group but can be enjoyed by all segments of society.

She also said the ministry hoped the initiative would continue to be implemented, with meals offered at reasonable prices becoming a norm among traders as well as food operators.

The initiative was launched on Jan 31 and offers affordable meals at RM5 or less for lunch or dinner at nearly 15,000 premises nationwide.

The meals comprise a balanced simple meal that includes rice, a choice of protein (chicken or fish) and vegetables.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the ministry had held engagements with several fast-food restaurants such as McDonald’s and Burger King to get them to participate in the Menu Rahmah initiative. — Bernama
