Hawke’s Bay company Bostock’s Organic Free-Range Chicken, have started supplying their product to top supermarket chains and restaurants in Hong Kong. A recent trip to Hong Kong obtained supply contracts to three of the region’s largest supermarket chains and numerous high-profile restaurants. Co-Founder Ben Bostock said the area is recognising organic farming practices as synonymous with the Kiwi ‘clean green’ image, and are prepared to pay a premium for New Zealand natural products. Mr Bostock added the Hong Kong nationals consider New Zealand-raised organic chicken as the best in the world. The Bostock brothers have loaded their third shipping container for Hong Kong, from their organic Hastings chicken business.
