Food production for sales by the low-income group using kitchen facilities of existing restaurants during non-peak hours


This venture recruits the grassroots or middle-aged persons for food production by making use of the kitchens of six existing restaurants during non-peak hours. The food produced will be sold on-site. This venture not only alleviates labour shortage of the restaurants and helps them develop new products and increase revenue, but also boosts the confidence of the grassroots and motivates them to work and earn a living. The venture will also promote local food production and develop a Hong Kong brand "香港好物".

The venture has proceeded to scale-up the project with funding support from the SIE Fund.
