It’s a well-known fact that most of Hong Kong’s food (90% to be exact) is imported from overseas. One brand is trying to change the game by growing produce right in the heart of the city.
Introducing Sustenir Agriculture, a high-tech indoor farm that grows imported produce in Hong Kong – so now you don’t have to buy greens flown in from halfway around the world. The benefit? You get your produce fresh and at its healthiest.
Sustenir has launched in Hong Kong with two types of kale: curly kale and Toscano kale. You may have heard about kale back when it was trending, but this veggie is anything but a trend. It has staying power because of its sheer nutritional value. Kale is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, calcium and more. All this – packed inside kale’s tasty leaves – contributes to a healthier immune system
When it comes to taste, this is the one thing that may deter people from eating kale. You may have heard that kale is bitter and too fibrous. There’s a reason why Sustenir claims their kale is grown in Hong Kong, for Hong Kong. They have made sure their kale tastes great for the Hong Kong palate.
Through controlled-environment agriculture, Sustenir can control the levels of light, water and air, contributing to a natural change in taste and texture – making this the best kale you’ll ever taste (and possibly even the healthiest).
Too good to be true? The best test is the taste test, so we challenge you to grab a bag and try it yourself!
And to top it all off, you don’t need to wash your kale anymore. You can eat Sustenir’s kale straight out of the bag – it’s soil and pesticide free, farmed in the cleanest environment.
You can find Sustenir’s curly and Toscano kale at select Market Place by Jasons, Jasons Ichiba, Wellcome, 3hreeSixty and Oliver’s shops.
