I’ve been aware of what Food Made Good has been doing in other parts of the world for some time now, so I am extremely excited to be part of the movement in Hong Kong. I am looking forward to being inspired by my fellow peers to see what further changes we can adopt to make genuine change across the food and beverage sector.
I have been conscious of the effect our industry has on the environment and have taken steps in both my restaurants to lessen our impact where we can. I am excited to be part of Food Made Good HK, as it supports all foodservice in operating more sustainably, and working together to reduce our impact on the environment and generate social good.
