Boom in local demand in Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, local products are booming. While 50 years ago 50% of the fruit and vegetables consumed in Hong Kong were produced locally, 98% are now imported, especially from China. In Singapore, 90% of fresh produce is imported. But the consequences of the sanitary crisis (supply chains disruption, border closures, etc.) drive local demand. In the North of Hong Kong, the market of a community farm has seen its sales double since February 2020, finding itself unable to meet the demand.
