Food Recycling and Donation Scheme

Link works closely with fresh market tenants and NGOs on food recycling to help reduce food waste, combat hunger and alleviate poverty.

This is a key initiative in Link’s sustainable strategy for resource management and to benefit our community.

Partnering with NGOs and our tenants

Our Food Recycling initiative brings food to the elderly and people in need by redistributing or producing cooked meals with surplus food collected from our fresh markets and food donation boxes in Link’s shopping centres.

Through waste separation and training, both Link and its tenants have a head start in preparing for the municipal solid waste charging scheme, which will be rolled out by the Hong Kong Government in 2023
