Hong Kong’s Second Annual Kin Hong Seafood Festival Celebrates Sustainable Seafood In The City This September

August 31, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

The second KIN HONG Seafood Festival aims to inspire change within the F&B industry in Hong Kong by encouraging restaurants to choose sustainable, and therefore healthy, seafood. Through raising public awareness and providing sustainable options, the festival helps consumers Choose Right Today.

Today, our ocean is under severe pressure from overfishing and pollution. Consumers can directly play a role in addressing these issues by eating seafood that is responsibly sourced and sustainable.

Supported by ADM Capital FoundationThe KIN HONG Seafood Festival is organised by Ocean Recovery Alliance in collaboration with Foodie. ‘KIN HONG’ means healthy. For seafood to be sustainable it must be traceable, and caught from managed stocks or farmed without causing harm to the environment and without the use of chemicals. As such it is a healthy choice.

Surveys indicate that Hong Kong’s diners want to be informed and to eat consciously and ethically. This year’s festival will provide an opportunity for the public to experience sustainable seafood first hand.  Consumer, chefs, retailers, catering companies and suppliers are also becoming more aware and involved in providing sustainable seafood, while empowering consumers to also make sustainable choices.

For the month of September, this international festival will showcase participants from over 100 restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, catering companies, airlines and entertainment venues in Hong Kong, China, the US and the Philippines. All of them have committed to serving at least one dish containing sustainable seafood. Participants include the Grand Hyatt Steakhouse, Cathay Pacific Airlines & Catering Services, City’super, Disney Explorers Lodge, Limewood, Grissini, A.O.C Eat & Drink, Le Bistro Winebeast, IKEA, Elephant Grounds, Shangri-La and Shore from Hong Kong, and Capital M, M on the Bund and M Glam in China, Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Twenty Five Lusk (San Francisco) and Crave Fish Bar (New York) in the U.S., to name a few. We welcome restaurants to join the festival by getting in touch with us at info@afoodieworld.com.
