Take a look at this year’s winners of the HKB Made in Hong Kong Awards and Designed in Hong Kong Awards
Winners were lauded for their innovations via online awards presentations.
With the changing demands of customers over the years, innovative products and solutions have sprung up to plug the gaps in service and convenience. Companies who have pushed towards putting themselves over their competitors have found success as Hong Kong Business recognises their remarkable developments and products in the Made and Designed in Hong Kong Awards 2022.
The Made in Hong Kong Awards commends products that are manufactured in Hong Kong across industries, whilst the Designed in Hong Kong Awards praise the products that have their roots in a Hong Kong-based office despite being manufactured outside the territory.
Companies were awarded through an online awards presentation, and have shared their thoughts on winning in the prestigious awards programme through virtual interviews.
Nominations went under the scrutinous eyes of this year’s distinguished panel of judges, made up of Alice Yip, KPMG China’s Partner and Head of Audit – Consumer & Retail for Hong Kong; Michael Cheng, PwC Hong Kong’s Asia Pacific, Mainland China, and Hong Kong Consumer Markets Leader; Andrew Lee, Ernst & Young's Partner, Markets, Greater China; and Falcon Chan, Partner at Deloitte China and leader of Deloitte’s M&A Consulting Services in Southern China.
Congratulations to the winners!
Made in Hong Kong Award
The COVID-19 pandemic produced a dire scarcity of masks, making them almost inaccessible to mass customers. Mannings, seeing the high demand, worked towards producing their three-ply protection face mask level 3, offering a safe and more comfortable face mask in the market.
First launched in 2020, Manning masks were repurposed and relaunched in September 2021, satisfying international standards with fluid-resistant material and high-quality filters in their ISO 13485 factory. As a trusted health and beauty brand, Mannings masks improved quality for both adults and children as the breathable material of the masks meets standards for safety and efficacy.
The masks passed ASTM Level 3 standard testing, the highest standard from ASTM, and are developed to pass toxicology tests in bio-compatibility testing. Third-party testing on hygienic control standards also gave Mannings the green light on how clean and hygienic the masks were for users.
