These health food stores offer a selection of carefully sourced food and drinks. This means you can ensure you get all the benefits of eating organic food, which is generally free of pesticides and preservatives, as well as being fresher and full of beneficial properties such as antioxidants. Many of these stores also offer other household products to allow you to make informed choices about the health and wellbeing of your family. Here’s some of the top health food shops in Hong Kong.
