Our Founders

Our founders, passionate fitness enthusiasts, were confronted with the challenges of eating healthy in Hong Kong. They realized that access to nutritious food was limited and often costly. Simultaneously, their deep concern for food waste prompted them to take action. They discovered that surplus fruits were being discarded at various stages of the supply chain, from farms to consumer shelves. This realization inspired them to create a solution that would address both issues—ensuring accessible, healthy options while reducing food waste.

WE TACKLE FOOD WASTE

At Food With Benefits, we tackle food waste directly at its source. Instead of allowing surplus fruits to go to waste, we source them from farms. These fruits, while perfectly nutritious, are typically discarded due to oversupply or aesthetic preferences. By rescuing them, we not only prevent waste but also make a positive impact on the environment.

Made with imperfect produce

Food waste does not only come from restaurants and retailers but also from farms. Many fruits are wasted simply because of their ugly appearance or over-supply, yet they are tasty and nutritious, just like the “fresh” fruits. Therefore, we utilize as much imperfect produce as possible to reduce waste at the farm stage. ​

PREVENT WASTE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN​

Indeed, 40% of fruits and vegetables are wasted even before they reach restaurants and retail shops due to their vulnerability. By freeze-drying fruits at their peak freshness and transforming them into long-lasting smoothie powder, we are able to rescue and repurpose these vulnerable fruits. Join us in our mission to make a difference. Together, we can contribute to a healthier planet by reimagining the way we view and consume fruits and vegetables.
