Vegetable Marketing Organization (VMO) was established in 1946 under the Agricultural Products (Marketing) Ordinance. It is a self-financing, non-profit making organization which aims to provide the public with local premium vegetables, such as accredited, organic and hydroponic vegetables. The expansion of sales channels was explored and various publicity activities were conducted to promote the development of local premium vegetables. VMO operates a wholesale vegetable market at Cheung Sha Wan, and provides wholesalers and buyers with trading facilities, accounting and other premium services. Our vision is to provide the community with reliable and plentiful supply of safe and high-quality vegetables and to facilitate the sustainable development of local agriculture.
The Fish Marketing Organization (FMO) was first established under the Defence Regulations in 1945 to assist the post-war rehabilitation of fishing fleet and to provide orderly and efficient marine fish wholesale services for the development of fisheries industry and improving the social and economic conditions of fishermen. Subsequently, the Marine Fish (Marketing) Ordinance, Cap. 291, enacted in 1962, provides the legal framework for the establishment and operation of the FMO. The FMO now operates seven wholesale fish markets located at Aberdeen, Shau Kei Wan, Kwun Tong, Cheung Sha Wan, Castle Peak, Tai Po and Sai Kung. Our vision is to provide the local fishing industry and fisheries trade sector with an orderly and efficient marine fish wholesale marketing system and facilities, so as to maintain a reliable and steady supply of marine fish for local consumers.
The FMO is committed to promote local fisheries products, to develop high-quality fisheries products at its fish processing centre and to provide local premium fisheries products from capture fisheries and aquaculture to the public through its sales network.
