These past months, we’ve seen for ourselves the plight of our beloved local hawkers, especially how the less tech and marketing-savvy have been disadvantaged at a time of digital disruptions. While some segments of F&B are well-equipped to exploit digital delivery platforms, many hawkers flounder amidst the digital wave, with the lower profile ones bearing the brunt of the hit.
To put the spotlight on these hawkers who are still cooking up a storm to feed Singaporeans despite the tough times, DBS PayLah! is launching a 𝐇𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐆𝐞𝐦 𝐇𝐚𝐰𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝, a one-of-a-kind awards that helps unearth some of the best hawkers in Singapore you’ve probably never heard of!
Hawker food lovers: please lend a hand to showcase your favourite hidden gem hawkers and nominate them on PayLah! – click link on IG Stories and bio. You may nominate as many hawkers as you wish! 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐡𝐚𝐰𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐒$𝟑,𝟎𝟎𝟎 𝐢𝐧 𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐡 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐬!
