PUTRAJAYA: The number of premises offering Menu Rahmah is expected to double next month from the current 700 food stalls and restaurants nationwide, says Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub.

“We expect to see a two-fold increase in the figure, including through the participation of fast-food chains,” added the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister.

Salahuddin was speaking to reporters after observing the implementation of Menu Rahmah at the Dengkil Rest and Service Area here yesterday.

Also present was Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, Bernama reported.

Menu Rahmah is a voluntary programme that sees eateries offering meals for RM5 and below.

Salahuddin said to date, there had not been any reports saying the food offered under the initiative was of low quality or not nutritious.

He said that the next step would be to meet with food manufacturing industry players in order to reduce the burden on food stall operators in offering Menu Rahmah.

Meanwhile, Nanta said some 215 stalls in R&R areas along all highways now offer Menu Rahmah, with another 100 stalls expected to join next month.

Elaborating, he said the first phase of the initiative was introduced to North-South Expressway (NSE) users on Feb 23 in several R&R areas and lay-bys in the central region.

The second and third phases would be implemented next month, involving the southern region of the NSE and the East Coast Expressway 2, he added.
