Mid-Autumn has always been one of the most important festivals in Hong Kong. Every September, you will experience a loop of give-and-take for exchanging mooncakes.
Instead of getting over-packaged traditional mooncakes from the chain stores in routine, why not try vegan mooncakes recommended by INVISIBLE TEAM who are also vegan lovers? All these vegan mooncakes are beautifully designed, dairy-free, and with their own unique flavours produced by local brands. In addition, many of these brands are concerned about the environment and carefully using green packaging options without compromising on the level of aesthetics. Start with the mooncakes and make a greener move this year!
