Food truck scheme to launch

December 08, 2015

The Tourism Commission will launch a two-year food truck pilot scheme, which will open for application in the first quarter of next year.


Announcing the initiative today, Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So said food trucks will operate at six tourist spots - Golden Bauhinia Square, Salisbury Garden, Tsim Sha Tsui Art Square, Central Promenade, Ocean Park and Disneyland.


Two food trucks will operate at each location. The 12 trucks will rotate from location to location, allowing the people there to try different cuisines.


He said the trucks should offer creative and high quality cuisines, look attractive, and meet food safety standards.


Applicants should submit a business proposal, including financial plan, the food offered, and vehicle design to a judging panel consisting of Government officials, tourism representatives and food critics.


Applicants passing the screening process will take part in a cook-off, where they will prepare their food. Winning candidates will be selected to join the pilot scheme.


Applicants must apply for licenses from the Transport Department and the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department before purchasing and using their food truck.


The commission will form a designated office to co-ordinate the scheme and provide one-stop services for applicants.
