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.

The aim of the festival is to raise public awareness about eating sustainable seafood, asking questions about where the seafood comes from and letting the community know that they can make a positive difference for our oceans by choosing dishes that are healthy for them and the environment.

We hope that you can be part of this exciting event – join us to enjoy the food from some of the nearly 100 restaurants, hotels, caterers and outlets involved who are all proud to be part of this new trend in food awareness that benefits all of us along the way. Some of the participating venues include:

Customers can feast on modern American dishes on the fifth floor, which transforms into a lounge late at the weekend, or try their cocktail and whisky selection at the bar on the sixth floor surrounded by the warm, stylish decor.Image title
