KUCHING: Padawan Municipal Council and CCK Sdn Bhd distributed aprons and caps to food handlers to promote hygiene at the Ramadan Bazaar in Kota Sentosa yesterday.
Involved in the distribution were MPP’s deputy chairman Mohamad Hashim Yap, CCK’s area manager Chai Min Diang, councillors and CCK’s employees.
CCK had come forward in sponsorship of attire for food handlers as part of its corporate social responsibility exercise.
According to Hashim, MPP wanted to extend private contribution in kinds and services with the true spirit
of total community involvement.
“There are 108 stalls at the Kota Sentosa Ramadan Bazaar, selling various kinds of food and drinks. We are working with CCK Sdn Bhd in the capacity of social obligations to contribute to the success of the bazaar,” he said.
In a statement distributed to reporters yesterday, it stated that the ‘Ramadan bazaars’ had been conceptualised since 2008 to provide strategic venues to serve the community where small scale traders could be placed to trade in a controlled and organised manner.
It was aimed to provide organised location within the community where local festive needs were met while creating areas of attraction and community interaction.
It was also to provide venues for active local community bodies to engage in sustainable self-regulating activities ‘for the community, by the community’.
Current locations of approved ‘Bazaar Ramadan Berpusat’ are Kota Sentosa Town Square (108 stalls), Synergy Square Matang Jaya (80 stalls), Matang Jaya Lorong 1 (40 stalls), and Taman Malihah (15 stalls).
