BMA pushes ahead with campaign to provide cheap meals


BANGKOK, 16 September 2014 – More restaurants in the capital have expressed their interest in joining the campaign to provide inexpensive meals and drinks to Bangkok residents.

The campaign which is a joint collaboration between the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and the Ministry of Commerce has already attracted over 1,000 restaurants and food shop owners.

The ministry has been supplying vendors with cooking material at discounted prices in a bid to assist participating restaurants. Vendors have provided meals priced within the range of 25-35 baht. The campaign is to help ease the pressure of the ever-increasing living expenses of residents in Bangkok.

The ministry has instructed food shops to maintain proper food standard and the BMA is also urged to further publicize the project on more media platforms.

The project is set to eventually expand throughout the capital and reach distant provinces.
