Kin Hong Seafood Festival

- Date: March 8, 2017. Hong Kong

Rationale and Aim for the Kin Hong Seafood Festival - SEPTEMBER 2017

The 2nd Kin Hong Seafood Festival will be held in September, 2017 in Hong Kong.  Kin Hong means healthy in Chinese, and symbolizes the need for having healthy seafood, from a healthy process of fishing or cultivation.   The Festival is organised by Ocean Recovery Alliance, a Hong Kong non-profit organization, with participation from restaurants, retailers, catering companies and others who are serving internationally recognized certified seafood.  The event is funded via the ADM Capital Foundation, which supports programs that help support the improvement of the ocean environment and communities that survive from the resources that the ocean provides. For the Kin Hong Seafood Festival, participating organisations are also allowed to use the MSC and ASC Ecolabels at their premises to raise awareness with their customers if they are serving this type of certified seafood, or they can also qualify if they serve seafood that is on the  WWF "Ocean Friendly Menu" list.

The 2017 Kin Hong Seafood Festival already has over 100 restaurants and F&B organizations which will be in Hong Kong’s key dining locations to gain maximum exposure, and we are pleased to announce some from the U.S., Macau and China.  The restaurants commit to provide at least one certified sustainable seafood dish on their menus for the duration of the month. Guidance and connections to sustainable seafood suppliers is provided as part of the program as well.

 健康海鮮節 — 二零一七年九月一至三十日

 理念與目標

健康海鮮節」旨在透過聯同海鮮供應商、零售商、餐廳及顧客,以各種活動讓大眾了解可持續海鮮的意義,推廣可持續海鮮對海洋保育的重要性,並追尋牠們的來源,在二零一七年九月終於迎來了第二屆。人類正以遠超海洋所能夠支持的速度消耗著各種海洋資源,而名稱中的「健康」除了指健康的海鮮食材外,同時亦象徵著海洋的健康和海產資源的可持續性。今年參與餐廳來自本地和海外,其中包括三藩巿25Lusk、上海米氏西餐廳、北京前門M餐廳、澳門美高梅酒店以及維珍航空,總數超過一百家!「健康海鮮節」期間,市民大眾可在參與餐廳享用以可持續海鮮為食材的佳餚。同時,我們希望透過合作,加深飲食行業對可持續海鮮的了解,亦為業界連繫更方便、透明的採購渠道,使其於市場上更具吸引力。

我們亦誠意邀請大家參與九月二十一日晚上在蘭桂芳Metta舉辦的「真 ∙ 可持續海鮮的背後」研討會。來自世界各地的專家將會帶領大家從廚師、海鮮供應商及食客三方面探索可持續海鮮在現行飲食業界常規下的挑戰和機遇;以及探討可持續海鮮於海洋生態保育工作處於起步階段的亞洲巿場的現況和展望。作為「健康海鮮節」的一部份,將會在九月十九或二十日設晚宴,詳情待定。
