Customers can get the Ramadan box delivered to their doorstep.
It’s just one of a number of boxes Morrisons in planning on releasing.
The new “Ramadan Essentials Box” is being launched as Muslim customers prepare for a month of religious observation, due to start later this week.
The box includes core staples such as dates and chicken breast fillets, making Ramadan at home easier for customers.
After ordering, the boxes are delivered the next day by DPD and are priced from £30.
Noor Ali, Morrisons World Foods Senior Buying Manager, said: “This box contains many of the products that will see Muslims through Ramadan.
“Our food boxes are a lifeline for many customers at this very difficult time and are providing essential food to people that either cannot leave their home or struggle to reach the supermarket.”
Those observing the holiday may be relieved to get their staples in one place.

Morrisons is playing its full part in feeding the nation during the pandemic by providing more ways of food being delivered direct to customers homes as many self isolate.
Morrisons started producing 10,000 food boxes-a-week at the start of the lockdown and the number is expected to reach 200,000 food boxes in the coming weeks, produced across three Morrisons sites.
Morrisons is putting in place new ways for customers to shop during the lockdown, including expanding it’s home delivery service and making more slots available to customers both through Morrisons.com and the Morrisons Store on Amazon Prime Now.
The supermarket has also partnered with Deliveroo so customers can order from a range of essentials delivered to their door by a Deliveroo rider on the same day.
When does Ramadan start? The religious time for Muslims follows the lunar cycle.
This means it falls at different times each year, much like Easter.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims take part in fasting, meaning they do not eat or drink between dawn and sunset.
Ramadan 2020 begins in the evening of Thursday, April 23 and ends a month later in the evening of Saturday, May 23.
