22 November 2012, Makati, Philippines. Earlier in October 2012, Hardys expressed its keen desire to support a social project in the Philippines, one related to sustainable development and a cause complementary to its industry (Food & Beverage). FEED was invited to share it’s mission and to find out whether any synergies could exist. Due to FEED’s scholarship focus on food security, the Board decided to initiate the partnership with Hardys, at their next wine & dinner tasting on 22 November 2012.
Learn what makes Australian wine so great from the Master himself!
