Hu Hun Hui, Managing Director of HappyFresh Malaysia said, “We would like to thank Dreamr for the opportunity to be a part of this project. Preserving health has been at the core of our service, by providing our customers with freshly handpicked groceries from their favourite supermarkets in the most convenient way possible.” He added, “Many of the leading causes of death in Malaysia, such as obesity and diabetes, have stemmed from unhealthy eating habits and we believe by consuming nutritious breakfast daily would bring about a positive and long-lasting change in those numbers.”
Dreamr has been collaborating with startups, corporates, and the Ministry of Education to create targeted and meaningful social impact in the education space. “We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with HappyFresh to welcome students back to school after MCO with a fun pack of the nutrients they need to power up their creative minds.” Said Adrian Lafage, Co-founder of Dreamr.
During the Movement Controlled Order (MCO), HappyFresh has been hard at work by delivering groceries to families across Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Johor Bahru and Penang, from over 250 supermarkets and specialty stores to doorsteps across the various cities and states. Popular store names include AEON, Tesco, Giant, Village Grocers and more.

HappyFresh has been generous in giving back to the community amidst the pandemic. In May, HappyFresh launched #RunInUnity, a fundraising campaign across Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. The campaign saw the group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Guillem Segara, run a half marathon to help communities that were most affected by COVID-19. A total of USD 14,424 was raised and divided equally across the 3 operating countries and donated to selected organisations. More about the campaign here.
