Officially launched at the Hong Kong Trade Development Council’s Wine and Spirits fair last week, the chairman of the HKQAA, Dr Lo Wai Kwok, said he was “glad” to announce the launch of the scheme which he hoped would “give consumers confidence in choosing a trustworthy wine provider,” as well as praising the “positive attitude and commitment” of the 29 companies that have so far signed up to the scheme.

He concluded: “I firmly believe it will be of great benefit, provide a competitive edge and enhance our position as a global wine hub.”

HKQAA CEO, Dr Michael Lam, added that he hoped the programme would encourage “more communication between wine producers and consumers” as well as helping to “raise awareness of combating counterfeit wines.”
