Bernice Liu Opens Smokehouse Business
Since Bernice Liu (廖碧兒) comes from a family with a restaurant business, she has invested heavily in the food industry in recent years. She successfully opened her French vineyard two years ago, as well as her own bar last year. At the end of last year, Bernice invested $1 million HKD with several partners, founding Crft Pit to supply smoked food products to hotels and restaurants.
Bernice said, “When I was studying in Canada, I personally loved eating steak and burgers.[In Canada], a lot of the foods were smoked. But in Hong Kong restaurants, they have to outsource these foods. Many [Hong Kong] restaurants do not have the proper equipment] to provide this service.”
Hoping to bring some Canadian flavor to Hong Kong restaurants, Bernice especially ordered a $1 million HKD smoking grill from the United States. The rest of the company investors are highly knowledgeable about the food industry as well. With friends and connections in different aspects of the supply chain, Crft Pit is able to offer smoked and cured meats and seafood products.
Although Bernice is busy with her filming projects, she frequently drops by Crft Pit. When asked if she has intentions of opening her own restaurant in the near future, Bernice laughed, “I’ll think about that later – I need to break even with this business first!”
