Kencko veggie substitute drink launches in Hong Kong

Complete kit

With all the heavy lunches and boozy Christmas dos this month, it can be difficult  getting in your full “five-a-day”. Smart food company Kencko is here to help, with a vegetable and fruit substitute drink that can be mixed up anywhere for when you’re on the go. Using 100 percent natural and organic ingredients with no added sugars, the New York/Lisbon-based startup makes it easy with prepackaged small sachets – just stir it up with a chilled liquid before consuming. The mix comes in flavours such as Reds, Greens, Oranges and Burgundy, each claiming benefits like boosting immunity, lowering cholesterol or improving brain function. Recently launched in Hong Kong, Kencko not only aims to reduce food waste from fruit and veg, but also helps people in need by distributing their products directly to communities in need.
