Under her food sustainability platform Honestly Green, in late 2015, she launched a food-focused farmers market, Tong Chong Street Market, co-presented with Swire Properties</b>.
The market grew from her 2012 project, Island East Markets, which was the largest urban farmers' market in the city, and showcased artisanal products that were locally and responsibly made and grown.
For her efforts towards food sustainability, she was named "Inspiring Homegrown Entrepreneur"in the inaugural Women of Hope awards and made part of Generation T by Hong Kong Tatler.
As senior director of Little Adventures in Hong Kong, she consults on the Hong Kong food & beverage scene, and designs and leads custom food and culture experiences, working with world renowned chefs, as well as clients such as CNN and Cathay Pacific.
Janice judges and contributes to major local and international food & beverage awards, lists and guides, and speaks and moderates on panels regarding the food & beverage industry, sustainability, lifestyle media and social entrepreneurship.
She is a graduate of the University of Melbourne, and holds an Advanced Certificate in Nutrition from the University of Hong Kong, as well as a WSET Advanced (Level 3) Certificate. You can have cake and eat it (in moderation)!
