Eat the Kiwi brings fresh New Zealand produce to Hong Kong
F&B sourcer and supplier, Eat the Kiwi, has been delivering the freshest New Zealand products and ingredients to the city’s top restaurants and hotels for more than two years, and we were super excited to hear they’re now delivering directly to retail customers. Their products are all unique and come from passionate speciality producers in New Zealand who know a thing or two about growing and rearing great quality produce. Besides meat, seafood, fruit, veg, dry goods and other kitchen essentials, it also stocks a delicious Lemon Honey Ginger Syrup by Six Barrel Soda Co (pictured). Mix this citrusy tonic with hot water to make a soothing hot drink that will ward off the winter chills. Or you can pep it up with some whisky for an easy-peasy hot toddy.
