With a population of 7.3 million and 56 million annual visitors, Hong Kong’s food services and trading companies have a large customer base. 95 percent of food is imported and the free trade port makes it easy for restaurants to source new and unique ingredients. Locals eat out an average 10.5 times a week with the city boasting one restaurant for every 300 people. More recently, Hong Kong diners have become more concerned about food sustainability, traceability and quality, paving the way for ethical eating.
