It’s time to roll out the green carpet for the launch of the Food Made Good HK Awards! Taking place on the 25th of November at the Eaton Club Central in Hong Kong, this ceremony aims to highlight top chefs, restaurants and food service businesses that have made a positive impact this past year in both the industry and the planet by serving food that are delicious, ethical and sustainable.
While it’s heartwarming to see such efforts are being made to recognize these accomplishments in the F&B industry, this event is not just about applauding the winners. It also provides a platform for them to share the secrets to their success, showcasing their climate-friendly initiatives and best practices, and presenting solutions to tackle recurring challenges so that others are inspired to follow their lead and make positive changes of their own - from how they source their food, to how they dispose of it.
Staying true to their values and pledge to be kind to our warming planet, Food Made Good HK has also ensured that all details within the event have been carefully considered to have minimal environmental impact. These include the various packaging and the trophies, which have been made from the wood of local trees that naturally fell during a typhoon.
It might be the first time the ceremony is being held in Hong Kong, but the Food Made Good Awards has been running in the UK since 2012 and previous winners include British chef, restaurateur and food activist Jamie Oliver and environmental activist Greta Thunberg. Hosted by our very own Foodie Debbie Wong, the Food Made Good HK Awards will also feature an impressive line-up of chefs and F&B industry members such as acclaimed food educator and artist Charles Michel, and President of Food Made Good HK, Shane Osborn.
Heidi Yu Spurrell, CEO of Food Made Good HK, says “We are thrilled to be bringing the Food Made Good Awards to Hong Kong. Over the past year our membership has grown significantly and we have a committed group of engaged and motivated food businesses who are striving to make long term, holistic, sustainable change. This is about the future of food! We can’t wait to share their successes and inspire the wider food industry.”
