VERO also specializes and takes great pride in the ability to personalize chocolates and packaging for personal and corporate requests. We have been listed by the internationally known magazine ?allpaper*?as one of the top five things to buy in Hong Kong (without having a retail shop and no online purchases only by enquiry). Often referred to as ?ong Kong? best known secret,?our areas of expertise fall into the following categories;

SEASONAL ideal for gifts, or those true chocolate connoisseurs looking to satisfy a personal craving.

PERSONALIZED ideal for restaurants, hotels, airlines, professional service firms, boutiques, clubs, and other effective promotional & marketing events.

> the individuality that it deserves. As for the chocolate and packaging, technically anything is possible - the only limit is one's imagination. The only thing we will not compromise is the high-quality ingredients and integrity of our chocolates.

We pride ourselves on creativity and individuality and tailor each event to fit the vision and budget of every client. I am always happy to meet  and discuss some of the unique options that we specialize in.  An example of some of our trusted clients are Langham Hotel, Dragonair, PURE Group, BVLGARI, KEE Club, Campari, SKKY Vodka, and Lavaza as well as some of Hong Kong? well known personalities.
