In time with the Buwan ng Wika celebration this month, Grab Philippines launched on Friday its festival campaign to support local products of various small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country.
Grab’s “NakakaLOKAL Festival” is the firm’s move to bring together homegrown businesses and its super app services to “celebrate the unique flavours and traditions of the Philippines.”
The festival features GrabFood’s most popular home grown food brands and local businesses under GrabExpress’ roster.

The fair will run for the whole month in the Grab-app, while the public can visit various pop-up booths of the participating merchants at the Central Square in Bonifacio Global City and The Market by Sugbo in Mandaue City, Cebu every Fridays and Saturdays this August.
As an added treat, Grab app users can also get a 15 percent discount on all food stores and concessionaires at the festival when they use GrabPay to purchase products.
Apart from the local businesses, the Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) GoLokal Team also banners other Filipino crafted, designed, and produced products in the fair.
