Expect all the homegrown company working with state councils bringing Malaysians all their favorite Bazaar Ramadhan delicacies to Malaysians who are in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

“Each year, micro-entrepreneurs and social sellers look forward to the season as their busiest period. They participate in their neighbourhood Bazaar Ramadan, and organise pop-up stores across our cities. But without a physical presence this year, they may not yield the same sales as before. Therefore, we want to support them to go cashless and expand their reach to millions of Grab users and use our ecosystem with services like GrabPay, GrabFood and GrabExpres to help them continue to thrive and deliver their goods directly to Malaysian homes, be it bazar favourites, cookies or Hari Raya outfits,” said Sean Goh, Country Head of Grab Malaysia.

During this difficult time, Grab Malaysia is also committed in supporting small, independent restaurants and hawkers by boosting their visibility and demand with Grab’s ‘Local Heroes’ campaign, as they are least likely able to weather the harsh economic storms ahead.

 “Our hearts go out to the Mak Cik Kiahs and Haji Sallehs who are just trying to earn what they can during these times. Ramadan is a time that all Malaysians look forward to as we naturally participate in each other’s festive celebrations together, and we love our local street food! It is even more important for us to unite through this shared culture during these challenging times. ” added Goh. 

In bringing the spirit of Ramadan right to the homes of Malaysians, Grab has also collaborated with its wide selection of restaurant partners to curate menus with timeless Ramadan favourites like Ayam Percik, Murtabak and Roti John to be available on GrabFood during the fasting month.

The company is also welcoming social sellers and home-based micro-entrepreneurs throughout Malaysia to leverage on their nationwide network of more than 100K delivery partners to help them serve their online customers more efficiently.

Businesses keen to tap into Grab’s resources can reach out to the company via grb.to/GrabRamadan

Local councils who are keen to explore digitising their local Bazaar can also reach out to Grab at the same website. 

Beginning on April 9, Malaysians can also enjoy up to 30% when they shop and pay online with GrabPay for their festive needs through Grab's 'Raya Deals Dari Rumah' promotion.
