WHAT IS SUPERQURBAN
Optimizing qurban meat which is processed into food reserves from animal protein for people in Indonesia and the world.
Superqurban is one of Rumah Zakat’s innovative products in the program to optimize the implementation of the Qurban service by processing and packaging Qurban meat into corned beef and rendang. Superqurban products are able to answer the problem of distributing Qurban meat to remote and frontier areas in the archipelago.
Corned beef that lasts up to 3 years and rendang Qurban which lasts 2 years, can be distributed throughout the year, and are effective for nutrition and Aqidah development. So that Rumah Zakat won many awards from the Superqurban program as an innovative product to optimize the meat for Qurban animals.
Superqurban as a product rich in benefits has been felt by our brothers and sisters in Eastern Indonesia, such as Tello Island, Kayuwadi Island, Alor Island, Rote Island, Sabu Island, Sumba Island, Komodo Island, Buton Island, Obi Island and Raja Ampat Island which disseminated through the Bhakti Kesra Nusantara Expedition program with the Coordinating Ministry for People’s Welfare (Kemenko Kesra) in June 2013 and 2014.
In addition, in 2016 in the Bhakti PMK expedition, Rumah Zakat also distributed 30,000 Superqurban corned beef on Bajo Island, Wetar Island, Matakus Island, and Kaimana Island.
