Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware (G/F)
Dr K. S. Lo (1910 – 1995) was an ethnic Chinese from Malaysia. After graduating from the University of Hong Kong in the 1920s, he founded The Hong Kong Soya Bean Products Company Limited in 1940. The beverage Vitasoy was sold across the globe after many years of hard work. Dr Lo's company has been the world's most successful soya bean product manufacturer and Dr Lo became a legend of the Hong Kong beverage industry. While running a successful business, Dr Lo made many efforts to serve the people and contribute to society. Among his many contributions, he will always be remembered most for one single achievement in art circles: his donated tea ware collection which was conducive to the establishment of the first Museum of Tea Ware in Asia by the Urban Council.To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Museum of Tea Ware, we have planned a whole year of celebration activities for 2014. "From Soya Bean Milk to Pu'er Tea" is our grand finale. It showcases the life and times of Dr K. S. Lo, founder of Vitasoy Group, and his story as a collector. From the collections in the Museum of Tea Ware, visitors will be able to recall the contributions made by this Hong Kong legend to Hong Kong society as well as to promoting Chinese culture.
