Supply Season：Harvest times vary by region. Beetroots grown in China are mostly harvested in October unless weather conditions affect their growth rate.
Storage Method：The newly harvested beetroot should not be stored in the cellar immediately, because the metabolism of the beetroot at this time is still active, which promotes the temperature of the cellar and facilitates the re-germination of roots. So, the freshly harvested beetroots are briefly stored for a month under 15 cm thick soil. It does not need to be refrigerated for storage and should be washed before cooking to keep it fresh. Once it is cut, it should be placed in the pot immediately to avoid the loss of vitamins due to oxidation by the air.

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.
