A second-generation Chinese-born Singaporean, Mr. Eric Hooy is the co-founder of Perfect (China) Co., Ltd (Perfect). He is currently the Vice-Chairman of Perfect, an enterprise specializing in health food, kitchenware, cosmetics, cleaning and personal care products for over 25 years. Adopting the strategy of "China as the springboard to the world", the company has expanded globally, offering its products and services in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and other countries. To date, Perfect has paid a total of over 35 billion RMB of taxes to China, making a huge contribution to the nation's economy and society.
Apart from being the Honorary Chairman of Zhongshan Association of Singapore, Mr. Hooy also takes up various leadership roles for other businesses such as the Director of China Wantian International Group, Wangu Sky Farm International Group Limited and Singapore Yuanli Group. Not only does hehave rich experience in business management and market expansion, but he is also a devoted philanthropist, realizing dreams for countless underprivileged individuals, which earns him respect from all sectors of society.
Mr. Hooy is a strong believer in working for good causes. Over the past 20 years, he has donated blood 26 times, giving over 8000ml of blood; he has also actively advocated blood donation to those around him. To date, Perfect’s staff has accumulated a stunning record of over 280,000 blood donations, contributing over 71 million ml of blood. The enterprise now proudly owns 32 voluntary blood donation teams, with 5 people successfully donating hematopoietic stem cells.
As China stipulates the maximum age of blood donation at 60 years old,Mr. Hooy made his final blood donation in 2018. Charity in action, however, has no age restrictions, so he decided to commence his "second donation life" by founding Wangu Sky Farm, which bears the mission of growing the world's best organic vegetables so that everyone gets to enjoy fresh and safe produce, whilst fulfilling his on-going dream of helping others to stay healthy for life.
