According to Ms Tania Lee, Category Manager, Campbell Soup Southeast Asia Sdn. Bhd., Kimball understands that with the rising cost of living, mums are looking for effective ways to stretch every ringgit spent for Raya preparation.

“We developed the Sajian Bijak Raya Kimball recipes to help mums in stretching their budgets. With only RM100, mums can comfortably serve restaurant-like quality Raya dishes to their guests. With savings on meal preparations, mums can spend more on other Raya preparation such as ‘duit raya’ and festive clothing for the family, house decor and so much more,” said Ms Lee.
