Notes:When eating grapefruit, pay attention to controlling the amount to avoid excessive potassium intake, which will cause a burden on the kidneys.

Grapefruit is one of the most common hosts for fruit flies such as A. suspensa, which lay their eggs in overripe or spoiled grapefruit. The larvae of these flies then eat the fruit for nourishment until they reach the pupal stage. This parasitism has resulted in millions of dollars in lost economic costs to countries in Central America and southern North America. Therefore, in commercially grown grapefruit, spraying pesticides has become an important means of disease control.



Our Story




Tim Kee was established in 1946. Mr. CHIU Kam Tim, our founder, started his wholesale vegetable business in Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. The business has gradually extended to three subsidiaries throughout these 73 years.

Father of Mr. CHIU Kam Tim was a landlord who established a Stone Factory in Guangdong. He experienced the struggle session during the Cultural Revolution and thus Mr. CHIU Kam Tim alone escaped to Hong Kong. In the early stage, he partnered with others to start a business but unfortunately he was cheated out of all his savings. In 1956, Mr. CHIU Kam Tim established Tim Kee, a wholesale vegetable store, in Kennedy Town, and worked diligently to make a living.

The successor of Tim Kee was Mr. Rambo CHIU Kwok Wai, son of Mr. CHIU Kam Tim. The sudden passing of Mr. CHIU Kam Tim drove him to pick up the business. He was seventeen at that time. With the teachings of seniors, his diligence and immense efforts, he transformed from knowing nothing to a businessman that everyone knew in the field. He was appointed as Deputy Merchandising Officer and Director of Overseas Fruits and Vegetable Merchants Association respectively.

The business was succeeded by the family of Mr. CHIU Kwok Wai, further carrying forward the painstaking family business with unremitting efforts.

Despite of the intense competition, Tim Kee could still grow and glow under the family’s hard work.
