For championing plant-based eating and encouraging sustainability in the food industry

Peggy Chan

Founder, Grassroots Initiatives Consultancy
Location: Hong Kong

Peggy Chan promoted organic, plant-based eating long before it became trendy. In 2012 she opened her vegetarian restaurant, Grassroots Pantry, and since then her influence has only grown. She launched her Collective Table initiative in 2017, which challenges chefs to cook more sustainably, and in 2018 was invited to cook at the James Beard Foundation in New York on International Women’s Day. The chef and social entrepreneur is also co-director of Zero Waste Alliance of Restaurants HK and an ambassador for Green Monday. Chan also opened a restaurant, Nectar, featuring nutritious and sustainable dishes, though it has since closed. Now Chan has founded the Grassroots Initiative Consultancy, with the aim of educating others within the hospitality industry on the changes needed to best implement sustainable food systems with ease and efficiency.
