The folks over at Shell Malaysia are constantly finding ways to help out the local communities and during the holy month of Ramadhan, their latest initiative is amplifying their efforts to help local businesses or SMEs. If you head over to any nearby Shell petrol station, a wide array of delicacies from these SMEs are being sold and promoted as part of their #RamadanWithShell campaign.
The MCO and CMCO have been devastating to a lot of small businesses, especially local food vendors. Shell Malaysia’s latest initiative helps them by providing ‘an avenue to market their goods during this difficult time and to bring Ramadan local delicacies to customers’ which you can find at their petrol stations nationwide.
Craving for some Nasi Beriani? Perhaps, Asam Laksa? How about those delicious local Kuih, Bubur Lambuk, and more? From now until 23 May 2020, you can find these and other local delights (provided by these small-time food vendors) at 950 Shell stations ready for you to take home for breaking fast.
Shell SELECT is also offering other promos on their deli2go snacks plus other combos which you can order via FoodPanda at selected Shell stations. Key in the promo code ‘SHELLRAMADAN’ using the FoodPanda app and enjoy 30% discount in PandaMart for all Shell SELECT items (with a minimum purchase of RM15).
According to Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd, “At Shell, our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Now more so than ever, with the uncertainties and unpredictability brought about by the COVID-19, we need to hold steadfast to the values that define us as an organization and enables us to contribute back to Malaysians.”
“Our latest initiative allows us to help our fellow Malaysians carry on conducting their businesses. We want to offer our customers local delicacies and Ramadan combos for the breaking of fast which can be bought from our stations or via delivery through FoodPanda. We believe in doing things that matter and at the same time we try to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.”
Part-time vendor Mazlan and his 14-year-old son Mohd Alif Mazlan said, “In the beginning, we were rather worried for this year’s Ramadan. Every year we would sell Air Tebu at the local Ramadan bazaar, and things looked bleak this year without the yearly Ramadan bazaar. Thankfully, with the Shell initiative, we are able to sell about 30-40 bottles of Air Tebu a day at Shell Station Inderapura in Kuantan, Pahang. Thanks to Shell for helping us through this difficult time and providing us the avenue to promote our product.”
