Press release

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.

“foodora’s mission is to bring good food into our user’s every day, and Ramadan is a month-long religious focus for over one million Muslims living in Canada, thousands of which live in our three Canadian markets,” said David Albert, foodora Canada’s Managing Director. “foodora will add halal symbols to each participating restaurant on our website and app to make it as easy as possible for our users to identify dining options that cater to them. We want to celebrate our diverse restaurant partners and user base, and make breaking fast a little simpler for our Muslim customers this Ramadan.”

Ramadan, which marks the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, will begin on May 27. For many Canadian Muslims, this means a month of fasting from dawn to dusk, forgoing food and water for over 17 hours every day. According to the 2011 National Household Survey, over one million Muslims reside in Canada, with thousands in Vancouver (73,215), Toronto (424,925) and Montreal (221,040). foodora is partnered with over 40 restaurants across its three Canadian markets that offer halal options, and has plans to add more as the demand for halal food continues to grow.
