The Best Of Hong Kong

With the recent uptick in COVID cases (Omicron!) in Hong Kong, many of us are spending more time at home, and in the kitchen. Instead of getting food delivery or takeout, why not try cooking your next great meal with our handy guide to fresh produce delivery services in the city instead?


Jousun

With its wide selection of vegetables, fruits, meats, seafood, and deli products, Jousun is your one-stop shop when it comes to shopping for fresh produce. A highlight for us is Jousun’s emphasis on supporting local Hong Kong growers, which maximizes freshness and cuts down on carbon emissions from shipping. Supporting our local farmers helps make Hong Kong more resilient in times of supply chain challenges, and decreases the carbon footprint of every meal. Sourcing from close proximity also reflects on the price, so your wallet will thank you for it. The nimble, local-centric focus of Jousun makes logistics easy, with free shipping for orders above $300, and next-day delivery if you order before midnight the day before.

Eat FRESH

Leave it to the moms to source the freshest in produce. Originally started by three mothers in Hong Kong, Eat FRESH collaborates with local organic farms to bring reliable, organic certified produce to the table. They don’t use plastic or excessive packaging, and instead opt for reusable cooler bags with each delivery. Customers can choose from a la carte items to subscription bags, with free delivery for purchases above $345. There’s even a special baby and toddler bag specifically formulated with healthful fruits and vegetables for homemade baby food, and seasonal green juicing packages for that extra vitamin boost.

Homegrown Foods

One of the earliest trailblazers in the fresh produce home delivery marketplace in Hong Kong, Homegrown Foods began operations in 2009 working with local farms in northern New Territories to across the border in China, producing organic, in-season vegetables and fruits that are harvested at their peak with their nutritional value and taste un-degraded by the extensive shipping periods that overseas produce face. The partnership farms undergo extensive annual audits to test for heavy metals and pesticides in order to meet organic certification standards. Their subscription boxes are based on three-month to one-year plans, and their a la carte menu also offers dairy, egg, and meat options alongside personal care, snacks and household care.

Ratatouille

The business began with a simple dish of ratatouille, and the owners’ journey to find the tastiest vegetables to enable this dish to reach its fullest potential. The search led to sustainable farms in Northern Thailand, and a business idea was born. Using only seasonal produce from farms certified under the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) scheme, Ratatouille offers a variety of vegetables popular in both Western and Asian dishes via their a la carte menu. They also offer an eight kilogram “season’s best box” at $650, packed full of delicious and nutritious surprises.

WHAT’sIN

Created by two French entrepreneurs in Hong Kong five years ago, WHAT’sIN started as a supplier to some of the best hotels and restaurants for premium tropical fruits from the French territory of Reunion Island. The business soon expanded into supplying for premium supermarkets and membership clubs before now offering the same level of quality to individual consumers. Order a la carte or via their subscription boxes starting at $415 on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Their boxes are packed with organically grown fruits and vegetables, and there’s even a section in the grocery menu for nuts and grains. They also use biodegradable and recyclable packaging in all their deliveries.
