As the largest fair of its kind in the world, the Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair provides a good occasion for us to announce the launch of our Opod refillable coffee capsules. Each capsule is made of 304 stainless steel and comes with a food-grade silicone ring. This product is eco-friendly and reusable and helps to reduce garbage. It is designed for use with Nespresso coffee machines which are popular all over the world. Since our refillable coffee capsule is simple, affordable and sustainable, it has attracted a lot of interest from international buyers. We see lots of potential for this product in the EU market because EU member states have agreed to ban single-use plastic products. Just in several hours after the opening of the fair, we have answered a lot of enquiries from more than 20 buyers from Australia, Bahrain, Germany, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Turkey and the US. Buyers from Australia and Germany are likely to place orders for our refillable coffee capsules.

Buyers’ Quotes
Michael Zhu
General Manager
Snowcap Trading Company Ltd.
Canada
With an annual sales turnover of C$30 million (around US$22 million), Snowcap is the largest souvenir company in Canada. I started to visit the Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair 15 years ago. At this year's fair, I am looking for die-cast cars for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and other gifts and premium items. Up till now, I have found 20 potential suppliers including seven for the supply of die-cast cars and 13 for the supply of glassware, bamboo mugs, green gifts and recycled plastic mugs. I’ll provide designs to potential suppliers and ask for their quotations. I plan to buy at least US$100,000 from each new supplier. In addition, I have already placed an order for US$250,000 worth of handmade wooden souvenirs with an existing supplier from the Philippines. In North America, people like less plastics and eco-friendly gifts such as those made of recycled materials. I like this fair very much because I can find reliable suppliers who can provide quality and eco-friendly products.
