In one of my prior articles, I mentioned switching to organic food to lead a more healthy lifestyle. I also gave more information on the availability of local organic pork – Wah Kee pork in my prior article. In this article, I will cover off the availability of local organic chicken in Hong Kong.
Ka Mei chicken is not only available at organic BB in Shatin but also at over 30 different sales point dotted throughout Hong Kong. For more information, please click here (NB: in chinese).
As for more information on Ka Mei chicken, readers can visit their website by clicking here (currently in chinese only). On purchasing Ka Mei chicken, my own experience is price can vary widely at different sales point. I have seen a Ka Mei chicken going for HK$400+ at ThreeSixty (Kowloon ICC), HK$200+ at Organic BB (Shatin) and ~HK$150 at Sheung Shui market. Hence, it is probably most economical to purchase it from the local wet market where I assume the lower cost of rent is keeping the price competitive. However, readers do also need to be careful they are purchasing the chicken with their feet tagged. There have been newspaper stories of authorized sales point selling off non-organic chicken as Ka Mei chicken. Somehow, the customer could taste the difference, made a complain to the farm, had leftover samples sent to a lab for testing to catch out the mischief.
