Co-founder, The Fresh Supply Company
Co-founder of the Fresh Supply Company, Jonny Kan, is committed to bringing top-quality fresh produce to Hong Kong at affordable prices.
“We’re sourcing from importers who supply direct to quality restaurants, and we’re constantly adding more products from different suppliers who are specialists in their own fields and food categories,” Kan explains. For example, a coffee roaster supplies the roasted coffees available at the Fresh Supply Company.
Previously a business development associate at Maxim’s Group, Kan was also an investor and board director at local premium non-dairy ice cream manufacturer Happy Cow. He was inspired to start the business with co-founder YH Chang after both spent time abroad and were “spoilt for choice with good quality fresh produce and the convenience of delivery through online shopping.”
Launched in early 2016, the business caters to those looking for more than specialized produce, or delivery services that are set up simply for convenience.
For Kan, there’s personal fulfilment too. “The pressure associated with running your own business, dealing with different people with various backgrounds and characters, getting your hands dirty and doing the groundwork — these experiences were extremely humbling.”
