Food Made Good Hong Kong is a local chapter of the UK’s Sustainable Restaurant Association. As a sustainability consultancy, the organisation supports the F&B and retail sector by adapting these industries to mitigate future challenges.
The recipes are acquired from restaurants and home cooks who choose to submit their dishes to the project. To be labelled “sustainable,” the dish must fulfill one or more of the following criteria:
*Features more vegetables,
*Includes better meat,
*Celebrates local and seasonal produce
*Has a lower carbon footprint,
*Sources fish sustainably,
*Wastes no food,
If a submitted dish meets at least one of these criteria, the restaurant or recipe will be uploaded on the One Planet Plate platform for diners and home cooks.
Since 2018, more than 200 chefs have contributed sustainable recipes. Over 2,000+ eating out destinations were also vetted and uploaded onto the platform. Its upcoming launch in Hong Kong will be accompanied with 6 workshops, conducted in partnership with Hysan Development and Asian Food Network.
Monthly Sustainability Meet-Ups(On-going)
Food Made Good organizes monthly meet-ups every second Tuesday of a month from January to October, at different venues each time. Guest speakers are invited to provide insight, whether in a round table, training workshop, or leadership session format. Each meet-up lasts 2 hours, and aims to provide an enjoyable meal for attendees while they learn more about the sustainable food industry and form new connections.
As of April 2021, 14 events have been hosted. On average, we have around 25 individuals from the Food and Beverage sector attending each event. Past examples of guest speakers in 2021 include: Neil Tomes from Beef & Liberty, Juan Gimenez from Ovolo Hotels, Matt Reid from Maximal Concepts and Alistair Monument from WWF-HK.
To discuss pressing sustainability topics pertinent to the foodservice sector.
To foster connections among attendees, members, and experienced industry veterans.
