Where To Get Your Groceries Online: 7 Organic Grocery Stores That Deliver In Hong Kong
Keeping your kitchen stocked with healthy, wholesome produce can be tricky and time-consuming in Hong Kong, especially these days we're spending more time at home due to social distancing restrictions. Luckily, these online grocers will deliver everything from farm-fresh fruits and veggies to sustainably caught or farmed meat and seafood, health supplements and more straight to your door
1/7 The Store
Shopping for healthy groceries in Hong Kong can be time-consuming. But now, rather than hopping from one shop to another to find exactly what you're looking for, you can get it all done at The Store. Here, you can find vitamins, superfoods, personal care items, organic groceries and sports supplements. There are even sections dedicated to babies and kids' goods so you can rest assured your bubs are getting only the best.
Best of all, it all comes delivered in recyclable packaging, and if you order before 2:30pm, your package can be delivered on the same day if you live on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon or New Territories.

2/7 178 degrees
If provenance is something of importance to you, look no further than 178 degrees, which specializes in quality produce from New Zealand. The selection may be smaller than most online grocers, but for good reason. Each product comes with a detailed description about where it comes from, why that matters and why it’s good for you.
The owners carefully select their suppliers, personally visiting the farms and meeting the owners to understand the philosophy and integrity behind each product—from manuka honey to tea, stunning jet-fresh meat and seafood, including king salmon caviar.

Originally created by three mums, Eat FRESH delivers organic fruits and vegetables that are all HKORC-certified and undergo annual testing. The produce is farmed in New Territories by organic farmers, whose individual stories you will find on the Eat FRESH website.

The website is also great for recipes such as dragonfruit vegan gelato, tagliolini with mixed vegetables, charred eggplant dip and so much more.

4/7 My Meat Man
The plant-based movement may be going strong, but omnivores gotta eat too. When it comes to eating meat in modern times, it’s all about making smarter choices; think sustainable wild-caught seafood, free-range chicken and grass-fed beef and lamb that have been approved by Meat Standards Australia.
Combined with speciality online wine store My Wine Man, My Meat Man is a one-stop-shop for dinner parties, BBQs or simply a happy, healthy kitchen.
