Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub has said that an engagement session with fast-food chains KFC and McDonald’s will be held next week with the purpose of implementing Menu Rahmah.
With a proposal of RM5 meal each in mind, the minister also adds that the Chinese Food Shops Association are also interested in taking up the program.
Amongst those that will be approached by the ministry are Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) and McDonald’s.
“We hope to continue expanding this Menu Rahmah program.”
“Yesterday, I was moved when a mother in Ipoh braved the rain on a motorcycle with her daughter (from Sungai Siput) to get Menu Rahmah dishes (at a Mydin supermarket in Meru).”
“That really motivates me to work harder to ensure Menu Rahmah is offered at more places to provide affordable food to those in need.”
He also urged other industry players to join in the ‘MENU RAHMAH’ initiative, so long as they do not shortchange the quality of food they deliver.
Let’s hope that this initiative will give more Malaysians access to more wholesome meals in the future.
