Join us at the Mandarin Grill + Bar for a socially distanced Sustainability Breakfast on Tuesday, the 12th of October 2021 for our last meet-up of the year. We will discuss the impacts and challenges of food waste, as well as ways to improve waste management.

Every day in Hong Kong, we are throwing away 3,565 tonnes of food waste to landfill and recycling only 2% of our total food waste. With the environmental, economic and social crisis, this cannot be sustained in the long term. Furthermore the government has recently passed the Waste Disposal Ordinance – food waste will not be voluntary indefinitely for restaurants.

A big thank you to our main supporter InvestHK, Fresh Accounting and venue host Mandarin Grill + Bar for making this event possible.

The Sustainability Meet-up Series is a monthly gathering designed to educate and empower the Hong Kong foodservice community — chefs, restaurateurs, FOH, BOH, suppliers, and sustainability leads.

Underpinned by our framework, the programme is curated to inspire the community, to uncover novel ways through which they can apply small but significant changes to their sourcing choices, menu design, and supplies. We will be organising talks delivered by sustainable food industry leaders, on various themes linked to UN International Days and our three pillars – Sourcing, Society & the Environment.
