KUALA LUMPUR, Jun 11 – Kuala Lumpur Tower (KL Tower) will forge cooperation with several non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in an effort to reduce wastage of its Ramadan buffet. Its chief executive officer, Meor Shahril Anuar Ahmad Rathuan said KL Tower plans to donate and distribute its surplus or untouched food to the needy through the relevant NGOs.
He said the effort would serve as part of KL Tower’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to help ease the burden of those in need around the federal capital. He said, in previous years, they only accepted customers who had made early bookings to avoid wastage. He said they were only allowed 10 to 11 walk-in customers were allowed. He said through this method, they were able to forecast the amount of food required and they avoided preparing excess food.
He told this to reporters after the KL Tower Ramadan Buffet food tasting, here, last night. Meor Shahril Anuar said KL Tower does not intend to impose a fine on its customers who wasted food during Ramadan and would instead remind them not to be greedy. Meanwhile, the public can enjoy more than 50 kampung dishes prepared by Chef Datuk Ismail at KL Tower’s Mega View Banquet Hall from today until July 3, from 6.30pm to 10pm.
It is offering the Ramadan buffet for RM99 per adult and RM59 per child. Customers will also have the opportunity to visit the tower’s Observation Deck and to view the city through the KL Tower Sky Box for RM20 when they purchase the Ramadan buffet package. The menu served includes “gulai lemak siput sedut”, “daging salai masak lemak”, “nasi ulam” as well as various types of kuih. — Bernama
