Eat a Bite out of the Lucrative Organic Retailing 有機零售漸成「肥田」耕開有人爭 An Interview with Prof. Jonathan Wong Director of the Hong Kong Organic Resource Centre 香港有機資源中心 黃煥忠教授專訪

“Organic retailing” has recently become a magic phrase with strong market value. For a reality check, its market situation is somewhat like the story depicted in the famous Chinese classic literature Walled City: Outsiders find it too attractive to resist and are eager for getting a slice of it. But insiders realize that there is a long way to go. Professor Jonathan Wong shares his take on the local organic retail market and how HKORC can help retailers capitalize this fast-growing market in Hong Kong. 有機零售近年漸成 magic phrase,大家都覺得它很誘人,很有潛力。實情如何?當然就像文學經典《圍城》 一樣,城外的人覺得它性感難擋,一腔熱血要闖進來,而城裡的業者,卻看到它未盡完善,有待突破的一 面。香港有機資源中心總監黃煥忠教授跟我們分享他對本地有機零售市場的看法,以及協助零售商如何爭佔 這快速增長的市場。 13 | NATURAL PRODUCTS | Sourcing Yearbook 2017
