Food Supply Companies That Deliver During MCO
With the recent announcement of the extension of the Movement Control Order up to 14 April, many of us are left wondering how we are going to get our groceries if we are to remain home during this time, especially if we want to also minimise contact with others in order to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19. Some hypermarkets like Giant are already implementing special measures like limiting the number of shoppers to 50 at a time and ensuring that all who enter the hypermarkets must be wearing a face mask at all times. Are there other convenient alternatives? The answer is yes. We have compiled a list of food supply companies that are open during this time to provide Malaysians with a delivery service to our homes.
