Our extensive store network and the fact we’re open 24 hours enables us to meet our customers’ needs and offer them plant-based options anytime, anywhere.

We believe this partnership with 7-Eleven, Hong Kong’s largest convenience store chain, has an enormous impact on promoting a plant-based lifestyle and that the selection from Green Common, including ready meals, dim sum and snacks, gives 7-Eleven’s customers greater choice when it comes to quick and convenient plant-based options.
