Pirry Leung, who had previously worked at a food-waste recycling facility, founded FurryGreen – an upcycling startup in 2020, hoping to turn leftover but unspoiled ingredients into pet food. Every month, they send some of their products to a dog shelter in Yuen Long as “rescue food for rescued pets”. There are more than 3,600 tonnes of food waste discarded every day in Hong Kong, according to the Environmental Protection Department.
