Do you know where your seafood comes from? How and where was it caught? Is it pollution free? Were bad labour practices used to capture or cultivate these products? With the growth in organic food, transparency of supply chains and the knowledge that Asia’s waters are some of the most diverse in the world, but also under some of the biggest stress from overfishing and pollution, Foodie is excited to partner with Ocean Recovery Alliance to bring the second Kin Hong Seafood Festival to life in Hong Kong this September 2017. Kin hong means “healthy” in Chinese and represents both healthy fish and healthy methods of catching or cultivation.
