Select foodora restaurant partners to deliver ‘Break Your Fast’ packs with every order placed at dusk.
Canadian Muslims will observe Ramadan beginning Saturday, May 27 through to Monday, June 26, and on-demand food delivery service foodora will help customers identify halal food options by adding a halal symbol to select restaurant partners on its website and app. Throughout Ramadan, foodora will provide its users with a complimentary ‘Break Your Fast with foodora’ pack with every order placed between 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. from 39 participating restaurant partners that offer halal options in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Each Ramadan ‘Break Your Fast’ pack will include two 500 mL bottles of Happy Water, and a box of Masa Dates, a traditional custom.
There are now several grocery stores that offer halal meat, but Blossom Pure Organic, set up in 2002, is still the only onein Canada that carries double certification; offering organic meat that comes from animals slaughtered in accordance with Islamic principles. The owner of this Mississauga-based business, Fahim Alwan, was recently in Ottawa to market his products. The Muslim Link caught up with him for this one-on-one interview.
