Harvest Mill
Launched in January 2019, Harvest Mill is a Central Food Processing Centre adopting the ISO22000 food safety system, aiming to raise our efficiency and productivity, while increasing storage space to store rescued food items, in order to serve a larger number of people. Its main duties include:
  • Main dish preparation: dishes are prepared and transferred to Food Angel Sham Shui Po and Chai Wan kitchens to be portioned into hot meal boxes.
  • Cook-chill operation: meals and soup are cooked and made into cook-chill meal boxes, and delivered to our charity partners and outreach teams through our logistics team
  • Cleaning: centralized washing of our recyclable meal boxes and cooking equipment

About the ‘Cook-chill Food Care Programme’

  • Advanced cook-chill technology is adopted in the Harvest Mill. In order to retain the quality of the food products, no preservatives are added to the food items, ensuring each meal is tasty and nutritious. Cook-chill meals can be consumed within 4 days in general (expiry date shall be printed on the meal box).
  • The purpose of the cook-chill meals is to allow higher flexibility in consumption time, as beneficiaries can reheat the meal boxes at home, thus benefitting more people in need. Currently, some of our charity partners are unable to distribute dinner to the service users, and there are no meal services provided over the weekend and public holidays. With the launch of cook-chill meals, the beneficiaries can enjoy the usual hot meal boxes, and takeaway cook-chill meals, to reheat for dinner or over the weekend and holiday.
