Welcome to Hong Kong FoodWorks, a website dedicated to the discussion of Hong Kong Food System. By food system we mean the way that food is produced, distributed, consumed and the waste disposed of in Hong Kong.

This site provides open source resources for researchers and practitioners in food of all levels. Whether you are working for a food NGO, a researcher stepping starting your project on or a curious citizen, you will find useful information for your inquiries about Hong Kong’s food system.

Resources include analysis of sources from government, scholarly research, news articles & events as well as a list of research resources.

At Hong Kong FoodWorks we aim to create an accessible site for all who are interested in and wish to learn more about issues concerning food in Hong Kong.
