Project Manager at Rooftop Republic, Angelica Klein, will be sharing about the huge potential of composting to make our F&B businesses more circular and close-loop, by integrating them into urban farming.
Angelica Klein is a Project Manager at Rooftop Republic, and she holds a B.A. in Environmental Science from Whittier College, and a MSc. in Food Security from the University of Edinburgh.

Rooftop Republic is a social enterprise aiming to achieve a more sustainable food eco-system through urban farming. Through urban farm set up, design, management and education, we aim to transform the relationship people have with their food in many of the most densely populated cities, including Hong Kong and China. We do this by promoting urban farming as a lifestyle to create sustainable behavioural change on an individual level paving the way for social transformation on a grander scale.
Rooftop Republic has been recognised by the Hong Kong SAR Government with “The Outstanding Social Enterprise (Meritorious) Award” and “Outstanding Innovation Award” at the Social Enterprise Awards 2017 and is an awardee of the DBS Social Enterprise Grant 2018.
Since our establishment in 2015, our team has transformed 55,000 square feet of idling urban spaces into 50 productive landscapes ranging from urban farms to vertical greens, indoor farming and agritech developments. The clients and partners we work with include real estate companies, corporates, F&Bs, hotels, schools and individuals. Our clients include Swire Properties, Cathay Pacific, PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, local and international schools and we have been featured in local and worldwide publications including the BBC, The New Yorker, SCMP and Monocle.
